If I could visit any place I've read about in a book...


I'm very proud of my new display.




I completed a warm up activity with my students a few weeks ago to help me build this display. Students were asked to take a post-it as they came into class. I made templates that asked the question

"If I could visit any place I've read about in a book it would be?"

Students entered the room and wrote their answers on the post it. Once they had completed this task, they put them on the whiteboard, collecting them in groups where there were similarities. 

I have used their answers to create the display. This was a Year 9 class, and I admit that the one that surprised me was Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, but I guess that is somewhere I'd also love to visit.

You can find a pdf copy of the template here. To use the template, print off one copy of the document. Attach six post its by placing them directly over the top of the box. Place this sheet back in your printer. Print the pdf again. The borders will print out as well. Redo until you have enough.

You can find a copy of the arrows used in the display here. I printed in colour and as A3 so that they were a bit larger.

The quotes can be downloaded here. The banner can be downloaded here.

The fonts used in the arrows for the display can be found below:
