A few months ago, my class created some old-school Great Depression Poster Projects. I know we are in the technology age, but many of my students don’t have access to computers outside of school. In order to give them an assignment that could be completed 100% outside of classroom, I had to keep it old school. 😀
I gave the students a requirement page that explain the goal and expectations of the poster. Here is the printable that I used:
And here is a rubric for easy scoring.
Here are some of the examples of the posters turned! Many of the students went above and beyond the requirements and included more illustrations and explanations than required.

Do you still do poster projects with your students?
Thanks for sharing this Jennifer! I am just going to start teaching the Great Depression this week, and I was looking for something different to do with my class. I appreciate the form and rubric already done for me 😉
Coffee Cups and Lesson Plans

Thank you so much for sharing!
I love this! Is it editable? I would have to tweak it slightly for our current remote learning situation.

This looks great! What grade level would you suggest for this?
