TECH TIP:  Make a Poster

Here is a fun project you can do with your class.  You can make small or large posters to decorate a wall.  The poster will print on multiple sheets of paper that you will tape or glue together.  

 

You need to use Microsoft Publisher for this project.  Here are the steps.

 

  • Open Publisher to a blank page.
  • Design your poster using the entire page (8½  by 11).
  • When you are finished, click on Page Setup (File Menu).
  • In the Publication Type box (in the Layout window), select Poster.
  • You can choose the size of the poster from the default sizes, or you can type in your own custom size
  • If you choose the 18 x 24 size, your poster will be around 2½ sheets wide by 2½ sheets long.  That means, roughly, 20” by 26”  
  • Or try a bigger poster – 24 x 36 – you poster will be 4 sheets wide by 4 sheets long.
  • You can type in your own custom size – just type in the size that you want in the width and height boxes - like 36 x48.  Wow – that makes a 3 foot by 4 foot poster.
  • Click OK when you have the size you want.
  • Now click on the Page Preview button (or select Page Preview from the File Menu)
  • You will see exactly how big the poster will print.  If you want to make adjustments, click on Close and make them.
  • Print the page when you are ready and have your students assemble your poster with scotch tape or glue.

Here’s a neat idea – take a digital picture of your class.  Use the highest resolution your camera is capable of.  Make a large poster to hang in your classroom.  Neat!
