This is SUCH an awesome anchor chart for teaching schema -- combine it with the "parking lot" for schema, new learning, and misconceptions, and it'd make a great bulletin board.

A great way to access prior knowledge and see what need to be clarified when starting new topics. For younger classes, the teacher can write ideas up. For older classes, students can write on the chart or write on sticky notes! Great to keep up with over the years and see what similarities you have with students' ideals
I taught my students actions to go along with this chart.... "Good readers ACTIVATE (throw your hands in the air) their SCHEMA (put your hands on your head) to understand what they READ (open hands like a book). Our SCHEMA (put your hands on your head) GROWS (use arms to show expanding) and CHANGES (roll arms in a circle)."
