For the third year in a row the students have also worked in teams in order to make mind maps on London. They have used several resources to visually outline all kinds of ideas on the city.
First the pupils place its topic in the centre of the map -the name of the city, a picture which identifies it, or both-. Then they draw branches off the topic, each one displaying a main idea, in a different colour and with its own visual representation. Finally every main branch expands in sub-branches, adding more ideas and concepts to the mind map.
Once the mind maps are finished the students present them in class: they do not only speak about London but also tell their classmates how their maps have been created and what resources they have chosen to make them.
