Activity Overview


Creating a public service announcement is a great way for students to connect with current events and bring awareness to their community. It allows them to combine research, writing, and graphic design to create a flier or poster that will be helpful for their school or community. In this assignment, students will create a PSA to help others remember their crucial part in slowing the spread of the deadly virus, Covid-19. Teachers can post these PSAs on social media, online learning platforms, or even print them out to hang in the school!

You can find additional PSA templates to add to this assignment if you want to give students more variety to pick from, or students can start from scratch using the large poster template layout.
