Every year my district sends out information about the state's fire safety poster contest and it seems like there had never been enough time. Previously the information would come out about two weeks before the entries were due. This year all the information got out sooner, so I was able to offer it as a choice to my 1st-6th grade students.
The kids already had their fire safety down, so we just needed to talk about poster design. The students practiced on GOOSe paper so I could check their spelling before they set to work on card stock. The winning posters will be displayed at the Capitol and printed in a calendar. The students will be anxiously awaiting results!
