This bulletin board is a wonderful way to showcase some important hispanic figures! The best part is that students can help decide who they want to be the focus while helping decorate the class at the same time.
From the creator:
“I used a picture of each person to enlarge using my classroom projector and document camera.
Then, I traced onto butcher paper and cardstock.
Assembled using tissue paper flowers and various party decor as extra decoration.
Finally, I added facts, quotes, and photos about each lady next to the bulletin board.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- As an option, have the students research and pick out who they would like featured on the bulletin board.
- They can come up with 3-5 facts and draw a picture or attach a print copy of a picture from the internet.
- After the projects are done, have each child share their famous hispanic person and the facts with the class before hanging on the board.
Honoring Hispanic Heritage!
Steps to Set Up:
- Begin with a black background on the entire board.
- Then, add your bulletin board border around the outside edge.
- Next, use a scrapbook punch to quickly create a bunch of circles that represent confetti. Attach along the bottom and around the board.
- Have students design their facts and pictures (or create your own replicas like the original creator did).
- Mount student work onto the board as you like.
- Add your title “Hispanic Heritage” to the board at the top.
- Finally, place butterflies and party decor fans on the board to fill in any empty space.
Celebrating our hispanic leaders is a great way to get students involved in your classroom decor and include learning in the process.
