My students LOVED the “5 Types of Animals” posters that I created for our Animals Unit, and this is why I created this quick NO prep activity for my students to complete. Plus I love squeezing in a quick art project.

This activity was created to give my students a chance to design their own Animal poster. First, my students choose one of the 5 types of animals we have been learning about (Fish, Amphibians, Birds, Reptiles, and Mammals) to design a poster on. Then, they had to use their notes from class and their knowledge on the animal that they choose to fill in each informational box. Next, DESIGN time! The students had to cut out each box, arrange the boxes on a piece of paper, glue each box onto the piece of paper, and then make it their own!
Each animal poster did have to have 2 picture examples. This is when they really got to shine. I was very impressed by the animals that my students drew.
