To construct the author study poster, your students will work in groups to conduct research on George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair). Students will then transfer their findings to boxes on the poster. Next, they will work together to color or paint the pieces of the poster. 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 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it!
