Mind Mapping and Common Core Standards

Earlier today I posted a list of ten mind mapping tools for teachers and students. Some of those tools were used this morning in a workshop that I facilitated in Missoula, Montana. Part of the purpose of the day here is for teachers to get familiar with some of the Common Core standards and some ways to address them. I pulled out some of the Common Core standards that I think mind map and timeline creation address. You can see my list below. Which standards would you add?

(For the purpose of making this post as constructive as possible, I would prefer to not see comments debating the value of Common Core standards. We can have that discussion in another post).
