How to Make the Most of Your Animal Classification Posters

  2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the posters, slide them into a clear sleeve, and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.
