Curriculum Integration often involves students in undertaking an inquiry into some topic or issue. The following graphic organisers are designed to assist students to use the inquiry process in the context of their learning. Teachers can follow the link to the resource then print off a copy of the graphic organiser and photocopy it for all the students in their classroom.

**The facts about …** This graphic organiser can be used by students to record the facts they have gathered about a topic and then to summarise those facts in their own words.

**My keywords** This graphic organiser can be used for students to record all the keywords that can think of relating to a particular topic.

**Know, want to know, learnt** This graphic organiser can be used by students to record what they know about a topic, what they want to know about the topic, and what they have learnt once they have completed inquiring into the topic.

**Reframing questions** This graphic organiser asks students to develop a question then rewrite their question in a different way.

**Inquiry self evaluation** This graphic organiser can be used by students to record how they felt they went with their inquiry. It includes ratings for aspects of the inquiry from their focus questions through to their presentation of findings.

**Time management plan** This graphic organiser can be used by students to plan out the tasks they need to complete in their inquiry.
