NGSS and Thinking Maps

23 Learners | 24 Completed Lessons | 6 Hours of Learning Time

Learning Activity

Thinking Maps are visual tools for learning, and include eight visual patterns each linked to a specific cognitive process. Teachers may apply Thinking Maps in all content areas and all grade levels. By linking each thinking skill to a unique and dynamic visual representation, the language of Thinking Maps becomes a toolset for supporting effective instructional practice and improving student performance. Teachers and students, therefore, independently apply thinking skills for their own learning while also having a common visual language for cooperative learning. By having a rich language of visual maps based on thinking processes, learners are no longer confused by poorly organized brainstorming webs or an endless array of static graphic organizers. They are enabled to move from concrete to abstract concepts, think with depth, and directly apply their thinking to complex tasks.

In this activity, you'll apply a thinking map to a PE of your choosing or to one of your science lessons.
