Print this fun, interactive brainstorm wall display to use for your students' morning routine.
With a broad range of ‘answer cards’ and a colourful, eye-catching theme, these interactive displays will be a favourite with your class in no time. Promote critical thinking skills, get your students’ brains fired up and ready to go as they enter the classroom at the start of each day or as they re-enter at the end of recess.
How to Use This Interactive Display
Add this printable display to your classroom morning routine! As your students come into the classroom each morning, give them the task of being a ‘brainstorm detective’!
Ask them to read the displayed answer card and formulate a possible question. Once they’ve come up with a question, they can add their question to the morning ‘What’s the Question?’ wall display.
Creating the Display
It’s so easy to make this display!
The PDF display comes with a banner, question mark cut-outs and over 40 ready-to-use answers. Once you’ve used them all up, you can create your own answer cards using the Word Doc version.
- Print off the banner and question marks and display them in your classroom in an easy-to-access area.
- Each day, print off and display a new ‘Answer Card’. You might even like to change these weekly to give your students more time to think.
- Make sure there is a whiteboard or paper nearby for students to write their questions! If you don’t have a spare whiteboard or any large pieces of paper, why not leave a pad of sticky notes for your students to write their questions on?
The answers in this resource are as simple as a number (The answer is 42…what’s the question?) or more complicated answers that will make your students think a little harder.

What Are the Benefits of Interactive Wall Displays?
Transforming your classroom with an interactive display takes a little time and care, but it’s well worth the effort due to the benefit it provides your students.
An interactive classroom display can:
- capture student interest about a particular teaching topic
- mentally challenge students
- help students practise skills related to their learning
- be used to help students calm down and refocus when they need a break from learning.
There really is no wrong or right way to make an interactive wall display! There’s only one rule – it needs to be accessible to your students! The level of interaction that your display allows is up to you, but it needs to have an element that can be changed or manipulated in order to encourage student involvement.
