Nonfiction Concept Maps

We began main idea and detail using concept maps. The main idea was in the middle box and the details were all around it. We began this unit by reading a fiction book and and a nonfiction book on the same topic. We had discussion about the type of text it is. We decided that we can't used a beginning, middle, and end graphic organizer for a nonfiction book because the author didn't write the book with a BME...they used facts and photographs. We made many concept maps in whole group, then they worked in groups of 5, then in pairs, and now they can pick up a nonfiction book and create a map independently. Here are pictures of them working in pairs while buddy reading their nonfiction texts. After break we will be comparing and contrasting nonfiction text on the same topics.
