Key Stage 3 Making Mind Maps on Starboard
Imberhorne School, East Grinstead, West Sussex Subject: Science
Year: KS3
Learning Objectives
Pupils practice making mind maps, each based around a KS3 science topic from the National Curriculum.The maps can be used to revise a topic before a test or as an assessment tool.Pupils improve literacy skills by completing sentences across the maps.

Pupils are presented with the outline of a mind map on the board which they complete by dragging key words to their correct places. Once key words are in their correct places the map can be a starting point for more complex mapping.Teachers can modify the maps by adding images or more details.

Maps used in Y7 have a blue background, Y8 have a yellow background, and Y9 a green background.
