L o to recognise what a mind map is

Mind maps are not just a spider diagram.

They have certain rules and ways to draw them.


Think of a topic for your mind map today

Think of a topic for your mind map today


L o to recognise what a mind map is

  • Have a blank piece of paper and have it landscape

  • 2. Start in the centre of your page with an image which represents the topic

  • A picture is much better than words as it opens up associations, focuses your thoughts and is better when it comes to recall.

  • Use at least 3 colours on your image.

  • Keep the height and width of it to 5cm

  • Do not put a box around your image

3. The main themes around the central image are like chapter headings.

PRINT THE WORDS IN CAPITALS – This allows your brain to photograph the image making it easier to recall.

Place the word on a line of the same length – any extra line will disconnect your thoughts.

The lines are thick and curved

These give visual rhythm and variety and make it easier to remember

Connect the lines to the image as this shows association

  • 4. Start to add a second layer of information.

  • These are words or images linked to the main branch

  • Connected lines are thinner

  • Words are still printed but smaller, maybe in lower case as they are less important than the original branches.

5. Add a third layer of information – use images as much as you can.

6. Add boxes around important points (images of words) This will make key words more memorable

7. Sometimes you can enclose branches of a mind map with outlines in colour this will create a unique shape and will aid your memory

8. Make your mind maps; Beautiful, Artistic, Colourful, Imaginative and Dimensional as they will be easier to remember.
