This quasi-experimental study compared the effects of concept mapping and teacher generated questioning on students' organization and retention of science knowledge when used along with interactive informational read-alouds. Fifty-eight third grade students completed an eight-day unit regarding "soil formation." Students who participated in concept mapping scored significantly higher on a test of relational vocabulary, identification of key ideas and written expression than students who participated in traditional teacher questioning.
