Creating Plant Graphic Organizer with Google Docs

Today Mrs. W asked me to help her 3rd grade students create a “Plant Life” graphic organizer.



I first had them create a “4th Grade” folder in their “My Drive.” Inside this folder, they created a “Science” folder that contained their plants graphic organizer.


Google Document Tutorial

Here is what I taught the students during the integration session:

  1. Insert a table of contents (Insert > Table of contents)
  2. Change the text style to “Heading 1” (This allows your headers to automatically appear in your TOCs)
  3. Change the cell background color (highlight the cells > right-click > Table properties…)
  4. Find appropriate images to insert into the table (Tools > Research)
  5. Add more font styles into your list (Fonts > More Fonts)
