This download contains materials for creating a series of six animal-themed classroom display posters (elephant, lion, giraffe, hippo, rhinoceros, camel), which combine images and written facts to help inspire classroom discussion and writing ideas at KS1.
The contents comprise:
- 6 complete, illustrated A4 posters, each showing statistics and interesting facts about the pictured zoo animal
- ’Blank posters’ - 6 A4 full-bleed animal photographs, upon which students can arrange the separate facts contained within the ‘Make your own zoo poster resources’ document (or indeed some facts of their own)
- ’Make your own zoo poster resources’ – a 14-page document containing several ‘Did you know..?’ facts for each of the six animals, presented as separate panels ready for cutting out and combining with the ‘Blank posters’ PDF
- ’Zoo Animals Factsheets’ – the facts contained in the ‘Make your own…’ document, presented as six brightly coloured (though non-illustrated) standalone A4 sheets that can be used as separate classroom display elements
- ’Giant posters’ – the six illustrations contained in ‘Blank posters’, each formatted as ultra-large images composed of four A4 sheets that can be printed off and assembled to create larger classroom displays
- Single-page ‘Teacher notes’ document
