We have used posters for our wall of family fame. Students make genealogies, pedigrees, and wall of fame posters (using bighugelabs.com) that highlight a family member (some examples: one student is related to James Bowie, another has a grandfather who walked on the moon, and another has won a couple of Emmy awards for technical production).
I like to use posters as a part of centers, such as minerals in our daily lives posters, posters for which students need to write the captions, and posters which summarize or highlight a classroom activity (such as our "Bob the Pony" detective case). We also use fodey.com's newspaper clipping to write articles that accompany photos the students take.
Eric, I appreciate the different methods your students have used posters for. I'm thrilled your students know enough about their ancestors to share the wall of fame. I'd not considered using Fodey to write an accompanying article. I envision such articles allow students to demonstrate deeper understanding of the content their poster illustrates. Would you mind posting an example of a Poster/Fodey combination to this discussion?
