How your poster will be different and the same

Your poster will be about a specific topic. For example, soccer or puppies. All of your information will be about that topic. You will choose different images and words to send your message. Your poster, though, will include many of the same features: headlines, subheadings, photos, etc. Make sure you include the items on the checklist!

When you're done
