Google, of course…but also: Graphic Organizer (GO). I use graphic organizers a lot in my classroom…And foldables #forthewin. I create hands-on activities, models and examples. There are a lot of useful resources for these types of things and they can be used for any content and grade/age level. GO’s are especially useful for planning and for students with #executivefunctioningdeficits. GO’s help with planning, information management, prioritizing, organization, task analysis, task initiation (basically all aspects and facets of executive functioning).
Here are some of my fave resources for GO’s (aka concept maps, mind maps, webs, etc.):
Education Place Printable templates for tons of graphic organizers that you can print for your students and/or use yourself to make a graphic organizer. A lot of these are great for incorporating in Interactive Notebooks.
TeAchnology Graphic organizer maker, concept maps, mind maps, and more.
eduScapes Links to multiple resources on graphic organizers and concept mapping tools and templates.

Inspiration Computer software for mindmapping/creating graphic organizers than can be converted to outline formats, Word Documents, PowerPoint presentations and more! You can also create flow charts and there are templates for multiple subjects and content areas. (Students 6th Grade and Up). In addition to being a helpful tool for students, this is a great tool for teachers. I have used this to create concept maps to show connections between ideas and concepts when reviewing a particularly unit/topic and bringing it all together with a visual.
