This is a 9 square menu with directions for creating a thinking map for different nonfiction texts, including biography, science, social studies, and nonfiction trade books. The center square is a 'free choice' square allowing the student to create their own thinking map response using one of 8 thinking maps. Choices include using circle, tree, brace, flow, multi-flow, bubble, and double bubble maps.
The menu can be put in a student's reading folder for reference when completing read to self activities, etc. such as in Daily 5.
