Creating Posters in Math Class (or any subject!)

Having students create a poster is a great way to 1) reenforce what they are learning and help move the information into their long term memory, and 2) provide them with a creative way to show their knowledge! I love using Keynote to do this for multiple reasons. Keynote makes it super easy for students because there is a variety of options for them to use. They can easily change the colors of the slide, shapes, and text. Students can either hand write the information, or type it in. If a student isn’t great at drawing, there’s a huge bank of shapes for them to pick from. I love that after students add a shape on Keynote, they can add a border and shadow to really make it pop off the screen!

Here are some basic steps for having students create a poster!

If you’re interested in doing this in your class, feel free to download my free resource from the Apple Book Store with more instruction and information! Here is the link:

The book contains multiple examples for math classes, but the projects can easily be adapted to any subject!
