Graphic organizers are fantastic for helping students brainstorm ideas for a personal narrative or collect information for a research report. Kids can create mind maps, sequence events, make connections, and more. Popplet is a terrific app for iOS devices (opens in new tab) that is also available on web browsers. Students can create their own graphic organizers combining text and multimedia. They even have the option to customize colors and layout.
Try out Popplet Lite (opens in new tab) for free on iPads or visit their website to learn more about what you and your students can do using Popplet in the classroom!
