This resource includes a PDF file, which provides a Google link to access all the images in one Google slide. Text boxes are already inserted for convenience! This Google link can be shared with your students via Google Classroom or Google Drive.
The images included in this resource can be shared with your students so they can use them in a fun Google App, such as Pic Collage. The students can open an image on their digital device and fill in the graphic organizer. Not only does this method eliminate paper and trips to the photocopy machine, but it is a highly engaging way for students to respond to their reading.
The images in this resource can also be inserted into a page with SMART Notebook. During small or whole group instruction, you can project the colorful graphic organizer on the SMART Board and have students fill in the missing information. Another idea is to have students visit the SMART Board during centers.
