Biography: Display Board
Lesson 16 of 17
Objective: SWBAT create a visual display to emphasize and enhance facts and details to accompany a written biographical report.
I purposely did not provide a model display board for students. I wanted them to use their own imagination to create their board instead of copying mine. However, I did give them a checklist of items to include.
Students worked approximately thirty minutes each day to create their display boards. We worked in the computer lab so that they would have access to the Internet as needed. I took art supplies so that students, who had found pictures, were able to begin on their board. They used construction paper, decorative edged scissors, and glue to create background frames. Students worked together and shared ideas.
Note: I was going to have students record their speeches and create a slide show using the iPads to fulfill the first part of this standard. However, our iPads were stolen the day before the lesson.
I made sure students had each item on the checklist. It was at their discretion how things were arranged.
