Looking at the concept comparison organizer and routine, we were thinking of so many topics that we could use with this. A lot of the social studies and science topics have many details that can be confusing, such as the simple machines, or ancient civilizations. This would surely be a tool to help break it down and summarize the similarities and differences with them. We really like your suggestion to have this organizer partly filled out. This would be very helpful for the students who write slower, and would allow us to use the purpose of this and not get hung up on the writing aspect. For our next one, I can see us giving the partly filled out organizer, and for some of the students giving them a neat copy would also be beneficial. One thing that was tricky for us, was that the boxes were pretty small and third graders don’t always write small. I can also see us blowing the boxes up a little bit to give them more space, especially for the summary. We look forward to doing these in the future.
