Symbolism Posters

  • FOCUSED – It should focus on and communicate a single message.
  • ORDERED – The sequence should be well-ordered and obvious.

And we did get symbolic and creative as well. Check out our posters. What about creating symbolism posters in your own classroom?

Watch out what you drink!
