Graphic Organizers

Graphic organizers are visual tools used to represent information, concepts or ideas, while mind maps are a type of hierarchical diagram that organizes information visually, typically in a branching format, using keywords and images. Both graphic organizers and mind maps are useful for organizing and structuring ideas, facilitating learning and retention, and enhancing creativity and problem-solving skills.
