How to make a creative and beautiful mind map of environmental pollution?

To make a good mind map, it is important to know some tips that I will give you below:

  • We must look for the most important points that allow us to develop better and easier the map, those points could be: types, causes, consequences, characteristics, etc. Those concepts are the ones that will go in the main branches. 
  • The topic of pollution is relatively easy to map, if you get a concept that seems important to you to place, and you do not know very well its meaning, it is better to investigate and in this way you will be able to disaggregate more and better that word.
  • Take your time, sometimes it is better to continue the next day, this will help you to detect some possible mistakes, lack of important words, new ideas, get better related images, among other things.  
  • Use: Word, PowerPoint, or specialized programs like iMindMap, the lines of the mind maps according to Tony Buzan (inventor of mind maps) should be similar to the branches of a tree.
