Designing a poster about yourself and displaying it in your classroom is a great way to introduce yourself to your classmates.

In the same way, when you look at all of the posters your classmates create, you will get to know them better too.

In this lesson, you will design a poster that will share who you are in a visual way.

This means that all your classmates have to do is look at your poster to discover special and important things about you.

The purpose of many types of posters is to capture an audience with a short message.

In this lesson, your message will be what makes you unique.

For example, you might choose to include something about your personal or cultural identity that you’re proud of.

Or you might include relationships that are important to you or special qualities you have.

If you feel comfortable, you can even share how you experience the world or challenges you may be going through right now or have overcome.
