Help students funnel their ideas in this Graphic Organizer and encourage them to squeeze our their own best thought for any assignment! Use this in writing, art, drama, group projects, science, or socials! If you need kids to brainstorm, this is the graphic organizer you need. I created this graphic organizer to help get kids to record lots of ideas in words or drawing formats, then it has them push their idea through a visual funnel, squeeze out their favorite idea, until they are forced to the one they’re going to do.

Watch a YouTube Video on "How to Help Students Get Ideas" to learn many strategies that you can use in your next lesson to help students get their ideas on paper faster and overcome the creative block.

♡A perfect solution for a busy teacher with a whole year to prep!♡

How to Use:

-Print and give to students when they’re planning a project or art piece. Have them brainstorm many ideas in #1. Then they will funnel... from those ideas, pick just a few you like and record in area #2. Then funnel further and select just a couple ideas, narrowing down your thinking and then record them in area #3. Finally, decide on just one idea and record it at the bottom of the second page!
