Q1 Fire Rescue

2. Visual Learning


Your task for this Quest is to rescue a family from the ruins of
their former home by organizing a relief effort. You will create a
visual map of your ideas using a graphic organizer tool. Gliffy,
Popplet and are great options to choose from. Brainstorm
ideas on how you could help this family with a fundraising event. When
you plan, you need to think about the Who-What-Where-When-Why-How.

Sample planning items might include: 

  • who would attend

  • what the event would be

  • when it would occur

  • where it will be held

  • why are you having the event

  • how will you organize the supplies/people/funds                                                               

To be successful in this task, you need to include everything from activities, supplies, food, clothing and volunteers that are needed. Experiment with the formatting tools within the graphic organizer for visual appeal. Try out the color and text features. Tutorials are provided in the steps below.
