Students can use these writing maps as a tool for their writing process when writing about Ocean themed topics.
The writing maps include circle map, bubble map, tree map (2 options), and flow map. You can choose from 2 options (color or black & white)for each writing map when writing about a crab, a shell, a fish, an octopus, a starfish, a pirate, a light house and a beach ball. The writing maps for writing about a seahorse, dolphin, mermaid, sea turtle, diver, surfer, sailor, and treasure chest are only available in color. The shell, fish, sea horse, and mermaid writing maps have 2 color options to choose from. Girl and boy pirate, girl and boy diver, boy and girl surfer and boy and girl sailor writing maps are also available to choose from. There are 8 black & white writing pages.
I also like to print out the color writing maps & laminate in order to allow students to practice their writing process with a dry-erase marker. There is an easy to display directions poster for each writing map that can be printed on cardstock & laminated for the best results. You can write on the line what you want your students to write about.
