Grade 7 - Materials, Research & Creation
Poster board, construction paper, pencil crayons, glue, tape, stencils, scissors, research books, computer with Internet and photocopier/scanner
After the brainstorming session is complete, have students carefully choose two people from the biography section. Encourage them to use a variety of research materials to complete this project. The Internet, library, magazines, newspapers, and books are a good start. Students should be encouraged to try to contact those role models that are living to gain more information if possible.
Once all the information has been collected, have students turn in a brief biographical write-up so you can check the accuracy of the information. Only then should students be permitted to start creating their poster. Students should try to make their poster as visually pleasing as possible (staying true to Venn Diagram form) while communicating the required information.
