This graphic organizer set was actually inspired by my upcoming trip to Disneyland. Disney makes everything so fun and beautiful that even waiting in line is enjoyable (okay, reasonably enjoyable). I have been brainstorming ways to bring this concept into my classroom.
Teaching students to organize information is not the most thrilling task, but everyone loves ice cream! Kids can use the cone for the main topic (a character in a book, a battle in the Civil War, a type of word, whatever…) and use each ice cream ball to give an important detail about that topic. Kids can compete to see who can get the most ice cream on their cone, and it will make your classroom look delicious!
