The Big Picture: Poster Time

Everyone has done a poster for class before; instead of making a poster we are going to use technology to make poster boards.  The students will make a Poster/ Glog on Glogster (https://www.glogster.com/). In the poster the students will build and add the pictures of the butterfly lifestyle.  The students will find a species of a butterfly they like and use non-fiction pictures of that butterfly’s life cycle.
