1. Introduction to Make a Promotional Flyer

Playback Speed:

When you are involved in completing a big project, such as a school improvement project or a neighborhood cleanup, you often want others to know about it.

You may even want people to join you in completing the project.

One way to raise awareness and recruit volunteers is to create a flyer to promote your project.

In this lesson, you will create a promotional flyer for a large project you and your class or group might do together in your community or school.

The example in this lesson is a flyer about a neighborhood cleanup project.

You will create a flyer about a project you and your group or class work on together.

A big project, such as a neighborhood cleanup, involves many tasks to be completed and many people to complete them.

A promotional flyer can make a project like this easier to complete by spreading the word to people around your school or community who might be inspired to either support or join you.

As you complete your flyer in Google Drawings, you will: Set up the size and background color, Add and format text, Add and format images, And align the text and images in your flyer.

This lesson uses Google Drawings, but you could apply these skills and concepts in any drawing application, or even on a piece of paper.
