The Hamburger Graphic Organizer, the most succulent of all printable concept maps for students and teachers. I know you’ve been waiting for a printable hamburger paragraph graphic organizer created by an artist who actually took the time to draw a quality illustration of a hamburger. No lame photos or poor doodles here! Only 100% FDA approved top notch drawing, delivered free to your virtual doorstep via the power of the internet and the wonderful opportunities provided by sponsors, advertising, and Google SEO. And now, lo and behold, it has arrived! In vibrant technicolor, below you will find two exquisite hamburger graphic organizers, along with their old-fashioned black and white counterparts ( For all you stingy color ink misers/coloring page fanatics. You know who you are.)
With these hamburger paragraph templates, you can teach your kids the main ingredients of a solid paragraph. Start with the top bun, representing the topic sentence. The topic sentence explains what the entire paragraph is about. Then move on to the juicy supporting sentences/details: The tomatoes, onions, ketchup, mustard, bacon, and beef (100% grass-fed) patty. Finally, complete the paragraph with a bottom bun, aka conclusion sentence, relating back to the topic sentence.
Now, before your children start writing their paragraphs, be sure to explain the importance of relating information and connecting ideas. Without logical structure, a paragraph simply doesn’t – hey, look, a butterfly. I wonder how George Washington managed to fight the British and invent peanut butter at the same time. I think my scuba gear will arrive in the mail today. Since nothing else is made in America anymore, why should the President be?

This was a wonderful way to teach writing a paragraph with a beautiful illustration.
(I did enjoy the president remark! ) You have a wonderful way of presenting and thanks again for sharing!
Thanks Sheida! It’s wonderful to receive positive comments and to know I am able to help you through my work.
Would it be ok if I used this for a teacherspayteachers document? I would be more than happy to publicly reference you and your work. Please let me know!
No. You may not use this in a teacherspayteachers document. The items on my site are only available for personal and educational use. Selling or distributing it on teacherspayteachers would be commercial use.
Thanks for asking!
Is there a way to open these as a .pdf? I would like to save them to my computer as a .pdf and print them as reference sheets for the students in my class, but I can only get them to open as .jpeg files. Thanks!
They are only available as jpegs. If you right-click on the jpeg, you can save it to your computer. Then you can print it using an image viewing program.
This is great, Tim. Thanks! My wife will use it in her 2nd grade class.
