Mind Mapping

  • We are now going to create our own mind map to help us plan our myth ‘Why snow falls from the sky’.

  • What do you think we should put in the middle of our map? Something to summarise our myth.

  • How many branches will we need? At least sixmain branches:

  • Characters – Hero, monster, damsel,

  • Introduction – create a setting

  • Build up – set your hero on a quest

  • Main body – surround your hero with conflicts

  • Conclusion – bring your myth to an end

  • The natural event – according to the story...


Greek myths

  • How many second level branches will we need?

  • Will we use third level branches?

  • Make sure you use the keys words for your myth.

  • Characters names, feelings, emotions, places, etc.

  • Use lots of colour in your map, colour co-ordinating branches.

  • Now it’s your turn....
