National Park Infographic

I'm working with a second grade teacher that is having all her students research National Parks. The students all chose the National Park that they wanted to research, completed their research, and then were tasked with creating a product to showcase their research. The teacher gave students three options: a paper based product, a digital book, and an infographic using Keynote. I find infographics to be a more challenging concepts for students, so I thought the students needed a little more guidance.

I created a project starter for students by editing the slide layout. I was able to place text boxes as text placeholders which allows the students to edit the text, but have the formatting options they need such as (color, font, size). This Apple Support page is helpful if you need guidance on how to edit slide layouts in Keynote. Here you can see my exemplar that I showed students. I used shapes, text, and drawings to create my infographic.


The Keynote file I shared with students is attached below. I created a Keynote file that had 5 infographic options. The slides are all the same the only difference is the color palette. The project starter provided has a spot for students to enter the park date, the date it was established, facts about animals, facts about the activities the park offers, and a map for them to identify the parks location. Students can add photos, shapes, and more to help show visuals for their infographic. If students were to use pictures I would show them that they could use remove background for a cleaner look in their infographic.

This Keynote file is specifically for National Parks, but I think the same concept could be used for other infographic projects. Making a project starter, especially for younger learners, can be very helpful!

Nice idea to have a project starter that gives young learners options and choices. The National Park lesson is fun and creative. Love your exemplar infographic - Glacier is one of my favorite parks!

Over the years, I have done several National Park projects with students. I love how you organized the template for this to make it easy and creative to customize!
