S&S Optional Activity 2 Tab 2


1. Students plan their infographic.

You can choose to have students work alone or in groups to plan and make their infographics. We suggest small groups such as pairs. Have students read the requirements for the infographic in Part II of Combustion in our Community Worksheet. The worksheet allows students to choose between a poster, brochure, or webpage as format for their info graphic. You may choose to limit these choices.

Before students make the actual infographic, they should draw up a plan for it. Emphasize the need to represent the ideas primarily pictorially, limiting the amount of text, and emphasizing connections. Layout is important. Connected ideas should be physically close together and their relationship communicated. Students can sketch their plans on a blank sheet of paper using pencil.
