Environmental Posters

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Nov 16, 2014

This assignment is designed for grades 6-8. Students are to create a "Call to Action" poster for the environment using InDesign and Illustrator. I start by writing numbers 1 to 50 on scraps of paper. I crumple them up and students choose a piece of paper with a number. That number corresponds to one of the topics on the 50waystohelp website. Depending on the number of students in your class, you can have students pick two numbers or even three.  Color choice is the key to success with this project. Students will create simple "icon" flat art for their posters using Illustrator. Included is an interactive .pdf with links to sites that can be of help to students as well as a link to the main site: www.50waystohelp.com
