The purpose of this study was to investigate how graphic organizers can be used to further learning in science class. Graphic organizers facilitate learning in content areas by providing clear visualizations of ideas and facilitating student reflection. Research was conducted in a sixth grade science class with 25 students during a weather unit, and it was found that in using graphic organizers in science class, students were successful in using the open-endedness of graphic organizers to gain a more thorough understanding of concepts. In utilizing literacy strategies like graphic organizers in the content areas, student learning and independence is increased and they are more prepared to practice these skills independently throughout life.
