Subway Art

All over Pinterest, you will find tons of really cute posters called subway art. They are usually framed, related to family, patriotism, holidays, subject specific and not to mention, super cute!  I tried to search how this name came to be...but couldn't find an explanation.

So...I can I use this idea in my classroom?

We have been studying the American Revolution so, this past week I had my students create subway art related to Valley Forge. I asked my students to research Valley Force beyond our discussions and pull they key ideas from this event. It was a creative way for them to demonstrate their learning.

I gave them the option to either hand design or use some type of technology. I showed them two Web 2.0 tools, Wordle and Tagxedo. Then, we looked at Microsoft Word for using word art.

My students did a great job!

I changed the sheet so that it can be used with any subject area! 
If you would like a copy of this sheet head on over to my TpT store. It's free!
