Mind Mapping Emily Fry 2

The first unit at English 1st year ESO lets the students find out about a few teenagers around the world. First they read two texts on Piret, a girl from Estonia, and Emiliano, a boy from Argentina. Then they discover about Susanwho is from Liverpool, and Kevinwho is from Manchester -both cities are in the north of England-. Finally the students read an e-mail from Emily Fry, a 14 years old girl from Brighton: it's a city in the south of England.

After reading and working with Emily's e-mail the students are work in teams in order to make mind maps on her. They use different resources to show all kinds of ideas on Emily Fry.

First the pupils place the topic -Emily Fry- in the centre of the map. Then, they make branches off the topic: each brach shows a few ideas and has its own colour and lots of picturesWhen the students finish their mind maps they prepare and give their presentations. The students speak about Emily Fry and also about the design of their mind maps.
