- Step 1
Split your presentation into five main sections. The first or the last section should be a summary of the whole presentation. You can begin with the summary and you can repeat it at the end.
- Step 2
Type and print out the title of your presentation. Cut the title off the white sheet and glue it directly onto the colored paper or directly on the poster board. Or you can use stecils and marker to write the title directly on the poster board sheet.
Type and print each section. Use one page (horizontal or vertical) for each section. Glue each page into the center of a piece of colored paper.
- Step 3
Decorate your poster board sheet with assorted poster board borders
- Step 4
Glue the colored paper onto the poster board sheet: place two sections on each side and one section in the middle. Place the other two sections below. Leave spaces so you can add pictures and draw any shadows, signs or arrows using the two cool colors marker . This will bring together the five sections of your presentation.
- Step 5
Print and glue pictures onto the poster board in the right spots and use the Two Cool Poster Board Markers to draw any shadows, signs or arrows.
Use Poster Board Stencils, if necessary.
Use the back side of the poster Board if you need to extend your presentation.
Place the poster board presentation in a poster carry on bag and carry it safely to school.
