A poster is an excellent culminating activity for biographies. After students have completed all of their research, it is a fun way to bring it all together. For this activity, students will create a biography poster for the person they have researched.. The poster should include the following information: date and place of birth (and death, if applicable), childhood, education, family life, adult life, major accomplishments, and fun facts. Students should also include the theme if it is applicable.
These posters can be printed out, laminated, and hung around the room. Students can also present their posters to their classmates, sharing their knowledge about their person. Thus combining research, writing and public speaking skills into one powerful assignment.
