Instead of completing assignments from a book each week, students are sometimes asked to make posters throughout the school year. These can be made at home or with other students in the class. Here are a few ideas for making a poster that stands out from others.
When you make a poster, the letters that are used should be large enough to view from a distance. There are student poster maker programs that can be used to design letters in fonts that are easy to see and that offer colors and patterns for letters so that they stand out against the background.
There’s nothing wrong with using pictures on your poster in order to get your message across, but they need to be relevant to the theme. Programs like a student poster maker often have images from the internet that you can use by printing the picture you like and then gluing it to the poster board. Try not to use too many pictures as you also need viewers to see words that describe the purpose of the poster and a call to action.
Pay attention to the scale of the details on your poster. If you plan to make smaller copies of your poster to give to a teacher or to other students in the class, then the words and images should look the same as they do when the poster is its original size. Contrasting colors work well to achieve just the right scale for the words that are used on the poster.
