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!
(These instructions are completely customizable. After clicking "Use This Assignment With My Students", update the instructions on the Edit Tab of the assignment.)
Objective: Create a poster that describes Edward’s physical appearance and his personality. The sign should be similar to that of a “lost dog” sign that would be hung up around town.
