Concept Mapping I:  Plant Way of Life

Introduction:  Concept mapping is an important learning tool that can be used in a variety of situations.  A concept map is a visual representation of how ideas (=concepts or propositions) are interconnected.  To make a concept map, prepare a list of the main ideas/concepts/propositions you are interested in.  Then, select the most inclusive (largest) of these and write it in a circle at the top of your paper.  Then, begin connecting the remaining ideas by writing them below and connecting the ideas with a line or arrow.  Label the line to represent the interconnection.  In class, I will show you an example making a concept map to the following ideas in the Plant Way of Life notes. 

Now, continue to fill-in the concept map (Concept Map II, Concept Map III)
