Brain Booster

Using a non-fiction book, magazine or newspaper choose a topic that interests you and create a mind map of your favourite facts.


Good non-fiction is so empowering. When you understand science, you are less likely to fall prey to superstition. When you understand history, you can begin to shape your own future and understand your origins. When you learn how things work, you can fix them. When you feel you know things about the world around you, you can be confident in your opinions. Reading non-fiction for pleasure can give you the tools you need to better understand the world you live in.

Challenge – can you now transfer your mind map on to a computer?
