Mapping Relationships with Popplet

Seedfolks Map (Reilly, 2015)
I am working on a unit of study that uses the text, Seedfolks and I have been thinking about ways to visualize text structure.  The tool, Popplet, works well for this purpose as it allows you to map associations and this brief novel is all about associations.

Here's the map I created:

The map really helps to quickly show the structure of the text--which in turn amplifies a possible theme of inter-connectedness.

If I was teaching this text, I would love to see what students created as they mapped relationships.  It would be interesting to then connect the maps.
