Ernest Hemingway Author Study | Body Biography | Collaborative Poster


Have your students create a collaborative poster and learn about Ernest Hemingway in a new and engaging way!

Your students will create an author biography by researching Ernest Hemingway and establishing his profile on a poster.

Students will learn about Ernest Hemingway’s life and his body of work as a legendary author.

Additionally, they will discover the importance of collaboration and effective communication.

Project Steps:

1) To construct the author study poster, your students will work in groups to conduct research on Ernest Hemingway.

2) Students will then transfer their findings to boxes on the poster.

3) Next, they will work together to color or paint the pieces of the poster.

4) Lastly, students will tape together the final product.

The poster is made up of six pieces of paper, which can be printed on regular copy paper or card stock.

Once taped together, the final product will be roughly 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it!

This pairs well with lesson plans for:

A Farewell to Arms

The Old Man and the Sea

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Hills Like White Elephants

The Sun Also Rises
