Spider diagrams are mainly used for planning (for example, an article or story) or creating and provoking ideas. And for your information, spider diagrams are not the same thing as mind maps, however, they can be just as useful in some ways as an idea organiser or an alternative note taking method. Spider maps are so easy and very quick to make. You draw them how you like and they’ll be done in a matter of minutes. The reasons why you should you use spider maps over linear notes is that alike mind maps, they reflect on the structure of your brain. They start with a central idea, branch outwards from the center, leaving endless possibilities. The other diagrams can be seen in the following images.
This kind of diagram allows you to think about the main idea and then how the ideas are seen to be present in many parts. ore than that, it is also an excellent way to encourage children to jot down their thoughts without having to worry about writing in full sentences or thinking about punctuation. These diagrams can be either used as a stand-alone activity to encourage children to externalise their thoughts and provide the teacher with an assessment opportunity, or they are used as a means of planning a ‘neat’ piece of writing.
