Classroom Veterans Day Activity | "Thank You Veterans" 3D Poster (Agamograph)
What educators are saying
Veterans Day Activity 3D Collaboration Poster. Easy for teachers and fun for kids and the perfect Veterans' Day activity for your class! This project is a "3-way" agamograph (3 images spliced together) and a collaboration poster mixed into one.
This project is unique because I dreamed it up to combine my agamographs and collaboration posters. There is no beating the "wow" factor at the end when children walk from side to side and see the images change.
Great for ANY age and designed so that younger students can enjoy the wow factor of my agamographs.
This 3-way agamograph may be hard to say - but I assure you it's easy to do! I know this may look like a complex project (that's the wow factor), but it's pretty simple - I've done everything possible to make it that way. The kids do the coloring, and you put it together - that's it – I've done all the rest! I've broken it all down step-by-step, AND I've made a video to show you exactly how to put it together.

The final poster is approximately 26 inches x 28 inches when complete.
You could use the final poster to display on your bulletin board, on a hallway wall, or at a Veterans' Day assembly at your school. If you and your students will be visiting Veterans this year, you could also present them with the final poster as a gift from your class to them!

What is an agamograph?
An agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles. This work is named after the Israeli sculptor, Yaacov Agam, born in 1928 and still living today (2018). This artist is known for his optical and kinetic art. To create his agamographs, he used "lenticular printing."
Although the process of lenticular printing is technical and very complicated, I have created kid-friendly agamograph designs that will result in a piece of artwork that won't soon be forgotten! The images have already been "spliced" together, and each space has been assigned a color. Once the pages are assembled, students can walk from one side to the other and watch the images change.
Jenny K's 2-way Agamographs: I have created many "2-way" agamograph (2 images spliced together) projects for teachers to use in the classroom. I was the first to introduce this idea to Teachers Pay Teachers many years ago. You may have used one of my other agamograph resources before (thank you!). If you have not and are interested in viewing those, you can see what I offer HERE.
Jenny K's Collaboration Posters: I believe in collaboration—teachers and students love creating my collaboration posters because of the large impact they have on their classroom and school-wide community. I love that this new resource combines my agamographs and my collaboration posters. You can see all of my historical collaboration portraits HERE and my seasonal and holiday-related collaboration posters/door posters HERE.
