A blank fishbone and herringbone graphic organiser.

Use one of these graphic organisers to help students identify and understand multiple causes for a single effect.

The fishbone and herringbone graphic organisers help to visually display the many potential causes for a specific effect or problem. It is particularly useful when working in a group setting.

To complete the organiser, students:

  • place the effect or problem in the circle
  • place each cause on a separate diagonal line.
