What is a Fishbone Diagram?
You will learn about one of the coolest graphic organizers out there! This graphic orgainzer is used by students and business people to solve problems of all kinds.
1. Make a copy of the printables. The video will explain the diagram.
2. You can create a fishbone diagram by hand, or use this template I built. I will use the template in the video.
3. Practice using a fishbone diagram with a cause/effect relationship. Do easy ones at first.
4. When you understand how a fishbone diagram works, go on to the Brainstorming lesson. Remember, we are not going to write a final draft for this type of paragraph, but we are going to practice using the fishbone, and other graphic organizers to get comfortable with cause/effect types.
