My students enjoyed this activity.....They thought it was so neat the way everything came out. Great and fun resource!!!


Get ready for Fish in a Tree. Filled with reading excitement and classroom community discussions. Fish in a Tree, a young adult novel by Lynda Mullaly Hunt is a New York Times Bestseller! “Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.” What is the meaning of this quote? Have you ever felt this way? The collaborative poster is a beautiful display and centerpiece to celebrate the book's themes and messages.

The collaborative poster features a writing prompt and brain-friendly fun. Students will collaborate to assemble the poster for your classroom wall, bulletin board, classroom door, hallway, lobby, or library. Great for the fall months, literature unit, poet study, or studying a gothic lit unit. Get your students enthusiastic about reading! Watch students and staff stop and look at your Fish in a Tree is eye catching!

The Fish in a Tree poster includes assembly instructions and helpful tips to make it even better! You will only need to print this one time per class! That's it.The collaboration poster project is a perfect size to laminate.

You'll love watching your students collaborate. The activity is designed for students to communicate and work together. Encourage your students to find class members with poster pieces near their own to create their masterpiece. The writing activity is truly insightful and reflective of Lynda Mullaly Hunt's writings and young adult literature genre.
