Text 2 Mind Map

Imagine you are brainstorming with your class about human body systems (this is our unit of study right now in science).  You have asked the students to list organs that go with the different body systems.
As you brain storm you create an outline that looks like this one:

Now for some fun.  You go to the web site Text 2 Mind Map and convert your outline into a web.  Now it looks like this:

You were able to customize everything about your web.  You chose the colors, text, and even the line thickness.  Then you saved the web as a jpeg and downloaded it to your computer to use however you'd like.

Now, wasn't that fun?  I highly recommend using Text 2 Mind Map with your students.
