Activity Overview


When children lose something that they love, such as a toy or a pet, they are desperate to find it. For this activity, students will create a “missing poster” that is made by Abilene. The poster should describe Edward’s looks and personality, and have a picture of Edward. Students should think of it as a sign that someone would hang on a telephone pole if they have lost a dog or cat. Teachers may also find additional wanted poster templates to add to the assignment to give students a choice, or students may wish to create their poster from scratch with the poster layout!
