Answer Key

?_Geography Poster
 

Provide students with the following tips for making a good visual display, poster, or collage:

  • Complete your research first. Read the information and make point form notes on what you want to include.
  • Think about what images you will use to represent some of the information you've read about.
  • Create a "thumbnail" (miniature) sketch that shows where you will place text and images in your product.
  • Try more than one design to determine how everything looks together.
  • Choose a final layout and make a full-size sketch of it. Stand back and look at it critically to see how it will look for your viewer. Do the text and photos/illustrations work well together? Can it be seen clearly from a distance?
