Animal Poster Projects!

Our first unit in science is on animals so we finished up the chapter by making posters. The students had to make a poster that explained invertebrates and each of the vertebrate groups. They completed these in class and they turned out great! They were excited to get to show them off to their peers today. We did a gallery walk and laid the posters out around the room. The students wandered about looking at each of the posters and then left positive feedback for the poster's creator. I made sure all posters received comments and they loved it! They were so excited to leave comments on their classmates' posters and even more excited to look at the comments they received! Here are some pictures from our gallery walk!
Let me know if you would like the directions and rubric handout that I created for this project and I can email it to you!
