FLEE Maps are a cross between a Flow map and a Tree map. They are fabulous ways for students to outline their writing before creating their first draft. We use them for persuasive and informational writing in the 6th grade, but they could be adapted for other uses.
Included is a blank version, and the filled in version. I print out the blank one for students at the beginning, but by the end of the year they can draw it on their own. Once they create the FLEE Map, they only need a few transition words to finish up their writing piece. It's magical! Print on 11" by 17" paper.
