Star, Webbing, Cluster Diagrams

Star, Webbing, Cluster diagrams are a type of graphic organizer that condense and organize data about multiple traits, fact, or attributes associated a single topic.

Star diagrams are useful for basic brainstorming about a topic or simply listing all the major traits related to a theme.

For example, a star diagram can be used to create a graphic display describing all you know about dinosaurs (when they lived, what kinds there were, how big they were, what they ate, where fossils have been found, etc.) or a graphic display of methods that help your study skills (like taking notes, reading, doing homework, memorizing, etc.). Another use is a story star, a star diagram used to describe the key points of a story or event, noting the 5 W's: who, when, where, what, and why.
