DIY Curriculum: Clubhouse Posters


My daughter and her friends are self-proclaimed bug veterinarians. This is the poster she created for their clubhouse meetings:

The Experiment Club's Bug Hospital

The process was simple:

Using a large size black foam board (extra-large size at Staples), neatly arrange the most important objects that are used in the club or project. This was probably the trickiest part – being able to narrow down just the key elements and not including everything. This was good practice in identifying the essentials or the core principles of the club’s mission.

Try to leave an equal amount of black space around the edges of your object display, establishing a “frame” for optimal effect. Also, try to space out each object roughly the same distance from one another.

Photograph the board from directly above, as best as you can.

Crop your photo and add text in Photoshop. If you don’t want to use Photoshop you could try free photo editing at Pic Monkey. Alternatively, you could add your own labels prior to photographing.

There it is, easy peasy.
