This idea works well for many grade levels.

Take this idea and run with it. Imagine using pictures of different objects, and students write trivia details on their silhouette.

For example, students read a book featuring animals, penginus for Mr. Popper's Penguins or owls for Hoot. Students research to find interesting details about the animals and write them on the animal shapes. This makes a super cute and easy bulletin board. The possibilities are endless.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Tools - Students write about their inventors.
  • Dinosaurs - Write names a brief discriptions of each.
  • Novels - Create shapes for the symbols in a novel. Write what each symbol means on its shape.
