Find the common characteristics of two or three representative sets with these Venn diagram templates.

What Are Venn Diagrams? Venn diagram is defined as the illustration that utilizes circles to represent the relationship among finite sets of things. The overlapping of these circles shows the common trait among the group of things. However, circles that do not overlap represent the different traits among the groups. Venn diagram is one of the effective ways of visually representing the commonalities and differences among the groups. These illustrations have been in incorporated as the educational tools to teach students about how to identify and separate the similarities and differences. Also, these diagrams have been included as part of the introductory logic curriculum. A Venn diagram can be used to represent the fruits that are red and orange in colors. We will start by drawing two circles with a part of them overlapping each other. In one circle, we will write down the fruits that come in red color, such as apple and cherry. In the second circle, we will write down all the fruits that come in orange color, such as persimmon and tangerine. In the overlapping part, we will have to write the fruits that come in orange and red colors such as pepper and tomato. Following the same criteria, we can find similarities and differences in other groups of things as well.

Help your students learn to define common characteristics or elements within sets by teaching them how to use Venn diagrams. The templates located below offer both two and three intersecting circles, generating between one and four overlapping spaces. Venn diagrams are primarily used in math and science courses, but can also be adapted for vocabulary building, logic, literary critique, project management, company organizational charts, decision making, and more! Tip: Some of the blank templates below offer colored circles. You can use the same color of markers when populating them to visually differentiate your sets.
