    If you need to, print out any pictures. You will most likely need images of at least one thing that you are researching and a diagram. If you think you need more, try printing out a title, but do not print out copied text. This is, in most schools, against the rules.

    Start writing down your facts, trying to compose them into proper sentences. I.e; FACT: In black holes, no light can escape. will become, In black holes, nothing, not even light, can escape. Unless you want to do fact boxes, then the above format is fine.

    Continue writing down facts in this manner, leaving blank spaces for the photos that you are going to stick down. Don't stick them down yet.

    When you've written down enough, stick down your photos in the blank spaces. You could try doing multicolour lines around them to jazz them up. Write captions beneath them, so that the reader knows what it is.
