7 steps of mind maps
7 Steps of Mind Maps
  • There are seven steps to making a mind map....
start in the center
Start in the Center
  • Start in the center of a blank page
  • Turn the page sideways (landscape)
  • Why?...Because starting in the center gives your brain freedom spread out in all directions
central picture
Central Picture
  • Use an image or a picture for your central idea
  • Why?...Because a picture is worth a thousand words and helps you use your imagination
  • A central image is more interesting, keeps you focused and helps you concentrate
  • Use color throughout
  • Why?...Because colors are as exciting to your brain as pictures
  • Color adds more vibrancy and energy to your mind map
connect main branches
Connect Main Branches
  • Connect the main branches to your central image
  • Connect the main level branches to the 2nd level branches; 2nd level branches to the 3rd level branches etc...
  • Why?...Because your brain works by association
  • If you connect branches, you will remember things more easily
curve the branches
Curve the Branches
  • Make the branches curved rather than straight
  • Why?...Because having nothing but straight lines is boring
one key word per line
One Key word per line
  • Use one key word or a short phrase per line
  • Why?...Because single words or phrases gives your brain more power and flexibility
use images throughout
USE Images Throughout
