These graphic organizers are great resources for teachers and students to use to assist them in a range of situations in the classroom.  They are all completely free to download and print in a range of sizes. Each graphic organizer also contains some teaching ideas and instructions on how to use them but they are very easy to follow with minimal instruction.

Using graphic organizers helps students make  connections in the classroom. Venn diagrams and other graphic organizers designed for comparing and contrasting help students make connections between texts, characters and other elements of literature. Cause-and-effect graphic organizers help students see how events in a story are connected, thereby improving their comprehension of a text. Concept maps boost students' critical thinking skills as they begin to understand how different subtopics connect to a topic as a whole.
