5th Grade Project:

 

Directions: Students will use Photoshop to create a custom Star Wars poster.  The poster will show the student, in an action pose, using a lightsaber and other special effects (see below).  The student is allowed to use their friends in the poster, however, that will be extra work.  At the higher grade levels the students will have to use more than just themselves (see below).  You will get to hold a real lightsaber for your poster, so you don't have to add one in at your grade level.

4. (20 Points) Costume - Student adds a cloak, or some other type of approved costume, to themselves in Photoshop.

 

5. (10 Points) Text Frame Title - Student adds a custom text frame somewhere on their poster that gives the poster a title.  An example could be Arch Wars if it was Mr. Arch's poster.
