This semantic map can play a critical role in helping kids build their vocabulary and fluency in classrooms. Multiple studies confirm the effectiveness of semantic mapping as they draw on the students' prior knowledge and demonstrate relationships between different components of a topic in a visual manner. Compared to reading text, this visual representation with the help of a web or map also makes the topics more memorable.
For example, this semantic map displays various models of transportation. After completing a topic based on transportation, teachers can show this map to the students to help them better connect with the knowledge they have gained on the topic. Various land, water, and air transports are displayed on this map to improve the vocabulary and fluency of students while also enabling them to know more about common modes of transportation.
