Using Folding Graphic Organizers

Students can make 3-dimensional foldable graphic organizers and use them to organize information from a reading. This could be information related to vocabulary terms, cause and effect, claim and evidence, or other groups of ideas.  After creating foldable graphic organizers, students can use them as a study tool to quiz themselves or to quiz a partner.

Tip: Pinterest has many of examples of folding graphic organizers.
