The Event Map graphic organizer allows students to acknowledge a particular event that has impacted their design challenge or problem they are seeking to solve for their users. It can also act as a guide for them in identifying common themes and ideas. The Event Map asks students to answer questions like: What happened? When did it happen? Where did it happen? Who was involved? How did it happen? Why was it important? The Event Map is a colorful, landscape PDF download that can be used throughout grades PreK-12 and across subject areas.
