You can draw the visual representation of your mnemonic using shapes, lines, images, or a combination of these elements.

In this video, you will add an image to represent a part of your drawing plan.

To begin, choose one part of your drawing plan that you could represent with an image.

And search the web for that image.

This example uses a bridge to show how the coordinating conjunctions "connect" two parts of a sentence, but you will search for your own image.

Icons and other simple illustrations are a good way to represent an object or idea in a visual mnemonic.

After you’ve found an image you like, make sure it is free to use.

Insert the image into your drawing, adjust the size of the image to better fit your drawing, and move it where you would like it.

If you like, add more than one image to your drawing.

Images can add humor, surprise, or creativity to your drawing, which can help you remember your fact.

This example plays on words by adding an image of claws to represent the two independent clauses connected by a coordinating conjunction.

To show the same image more than once in a drawing, duplicate it.

You can also change the orientation of images.

Now, it’s your turn: Search for an image that represents part of your drawing plan, Check the image’s permissions and insert it, Resize and move the image, Repeat this process to add more images to your drawing, And duplicate and change the orientation of images, as necessary.
