A bubble map is a type of graphic organiser that helps individuals identify and describe qualities of an object using adjectives or adjective phrases. The diagram usually consists of a large bubble that connects to smaller bubbles with lines. Many educators use bubble maps to help improve and increase their students' descriptive writing skills and vocabulary. If you would like to create and print your own bubble map, you can find the template on your computer or online.
