Ida B. Wells Body Biography Project — Collaborative Poster Activity


Have your students create a collaborative poster and learn about Ida B. Wells in a fun, fresh, and engaging way!

This biography research project emphasizes the significance of teamwork and effective communication, highlighting the importance of a unified body of knowledge.

Your students will conduct research and demonstrate an understanding of the life of Ida B. Wells by creating a beautiful biography poster.

This is an awesome Black History Month Activity!

Powerful People Project Steps:

1. To construct the biography poster, your students will work in groups to conduct research on Ida B. Wells.

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 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it.
