Today, 22nd September, I thought I would introduce the concept of Mind Mapping. Having received a hedgehog soft toy from his Nanny we thought we would investigate the hedgehog in greater detail. Rather than just draw the map we have started to create a more interactive map.
First Theo painted some sheets of paper, which when dry we cut into strips to create the joining lines.
Then Theo drew a picture of a hedgehog to act as the central image.
Next we started to answer two questions Theo had namely where do they live and what the prickles for. This introduced the concept of a web search and we found a picture of a hedgehog nest and a picture of a hedgehog in a defensive ball.
We will continue to build up this map and start work on some others soon.
