Create a mind map with ideas/ events that you could write about in your newspaper article. You can choose anything. It could be an interest of yours, a special event that you want to write about or it can even be based on the events happening in the world at present - the choice is yours!
Use pictures, diagrams and colour to make your mind map more creative and to help you generate more ideas.
Circle the idea that you prefer and are planning to use in your article and write a few sentences as to why you chose that topic.
