This 11 x 17 graphic organizer of the Russian Revolution goes beyond a typical graphic organizer and allows the space for students to really see the entire Russian Revolution on one large page.
Just use the large tray in your copy machine. If you cannot print directly to a copy machine or to a standard printer it can likely be printed in your administration offices.
A blank organizer, a completed organizer, a sheet of open ended questions and answer key are included.
I've attached both a PDF and a Microsoft Publisher version of the maps and the questions are in Microsoft Word..
