Rock the Test! It’s a test taking collaboration poster titled "We will rock the test!" I also like to call these cooperative activities “partner posters”. Are you preparing for the big test? If so, take some time to help your kids relax while also reviewing some handy dandy test taking tips.

With this little partner poster project, students will work together to create a fun and whimsical test prep display. These colorful posters make for a fun hallway or classroom display.Partner Posters (also called collaboration posters) promote fun and cooperation. They allow for communication and creativity. Students get to pick their own colors for their piece. The finished posters add bright colors and whimsy to your learning environment.
How many pieces is each finished poster? For this particular partner poster, there are 4 pieces/panels. This means that a group of 4 students will work in collaboration with each other. You can decide how much collaboration you want them to have while actually coloring. If you have a group without four students, you might want to let a student color two pieces or have a couple of students from other groups that finish early to help out with the remaining pieces.
Each child will individually color their part. The colors do not need to completely match. Part of the fun is having posters that are unique with lots of mismatched colors. It makes for a whimsical display. For example, look at the girl’s hair in my sample pic. One child colored the bottom of the hair purple, while the other child colored the top half yellow. When the 4 pieces are taped together, it makes for a fun poster to display.
I have also included a sheet titled “To help us rock the test, we can….” The group of four kids that worked together can come up with a list of ways to “rock the test”. The groups can then share their ideas with the class. This is a great way to review important tips and strategies. When you put the posters on display, hang the list of suggestions beside it.
Good luck on your test!! :-)
