Exploratree: (no age listed, no account needed)

Exploratree: offers a bank of fully editable ready-made thinking guides in multiple categories (e.g. map your ideas, solve problems, explore, analyze, different perspectives.) Each category offers 5 templates. For example, solve problems (e.g. Knowing Trees, Is is/not, Reversal, Use the essence, Digging up roots)

Exploratree

Within each template you can format text, add shapes, images, and text boxes, and layer objects. Another nice feature is different modes within the web app (e.g. create it, do it, and show it) which allows the user to complete the template in steps rather than all at once.

Student Use: No account needed to print…to save you must create an account with an email address, ideally thinking guides would be created and printed in one class period to avoid the need for saving/account, creating an account allows for collaboration, sharing and commenting on thinking guides

See Exploratree (attached PDF) for further instructions, lesson ideas, and extensions.
