Can you spot the Ingredients of a good INFORMATION POSTER?????

We know that a successful Information Poster answers the questions

WHO? WHEN? WHERE? WHY? HOW? WHAT? 

But to be ENGAGING, an Information Poster must use text features to catch the reader’s attention & organize all that good information. Study these two examples and make your list of engaging text features….. then check the list at the end to see how you did!!!
