What educators are saying

My students loved doing this assignment and seeing their work as it is combined with all pieces to create a hallway poster.
I used this with my class as we did a unit on Scholarly Habits of Thought and I tied it to Growth Mindset and how perseverance pays off. It was a great way to start the year!

My original Famous Faces® Growth Mindset collaborative poster is perfect for setting your classroom tone for the school year or the new year! This collaborative poster activity produces a large (7 ft long!) poster, with individual contributions from each student, featuring inspirational quotes from famous persons meant to encourage a growth mindset!

This poster features:

• Martin Luther King Jr.

• Amelia Earhart

• Abraham Lincoln

• Nelson Mandela

• Marie Curie

• Rosa Parks

• Albert Einstein

This poster pairs perfectly with my Unscramble the Growth Mindset Portraits.

This poster/banner (or bulletin board idea) stands alone or can be connected to my Growth Mindset Collaboration Poster Volume 2 to make an extra-long display that is perfect for hanging in a hallway as inspiration to all who pass by!

This poster is part of my very popular Famous Faces® series, which includes:

All my collaborative posters are easy for teachers and fun for kids and make a lasting impression—on students, parents, and your entire school community!

Large and visually striking, this poster is the perfect accompaniment to your growth mindset lessons and makes for a great display in...

  • Front office
  • Auditorium
  • Hallway
  • Your classroom

No matter where it ends up hanging, it will engender unending compliments while proving a source of inspiration!

The collaborative nature of this poster makes an impact without having to say anything —every single piece of the poster matters—just as every child in the class matters. Your students will walk by and say, "I did that piece." each time they see the poster. They take great pride in being part of this art project.

Differentiation is built into the design of this activity. Some pages have more to color than others, so some kids will easily color two pages. There are large sections behind the quotes that get left white. Other pages have a lot of little details to color. You can use this to differentiate and provide the appropriate experience for each child to succeed and be part of the group.

Poster Details:

  • There are 3 rows and 12 columns for a total of 36 pieces.
  • The final poster is approx. 21” x 84” when complete.
  • This poster is ideal for a large bulletin board or a hallway.
  • Each poster piece fits on standard 8.5” x 11” piece of paper.
  • Use markers, colored pencils, or crayons.

The colors you will need are:

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Green
  • ...and lots and lots and lots of yellow! (you can print on light yellow paper if you don't want to use so much yellow.

*Note: If you plan to laminate this poster, don’t use crayons because the heat from the laminator will often melt the wax from the crayons and ruin the poster.

2 Poster Options

The color key of this poster is a tiny bit complicated, so I created 2 variations to make this as easy for you as possible. The final poster of BOTH are the same—the difference is the color key at the top.

Option #1. The first version of the poster has the color key in black and white with instructions and notes printed at the top telling the students exactly what they need to do on their page (see the preview for examples). You will need to print the page in black and white for this option.

Option #2. The second version of the poster has the color key in color. If you can print in color, please use this poster. It will be easier for students to know precisely how their pieces should be colored. It's also beneficial for younger children who might not yet be able to read and save you from having to run around the room reading the different instructions to the kids (see the preview for examples).

I hope your students enjoy this poster! I always love to see what they make, so feel free to email me or tag me on social media when you share this project!
