Free Downloadable Posters I Found For My Classroom 2016-2017

Some teachers are already rolling with the 2016-2017 school year, but I still have some time before it’s here. I’ve been thinking about my classroom and what I might want to put on the walls. I think what I’ll experiment with this year is downloading free posters and displaying them with DIY hanging frames made with magnets, string, and wooden sticks (click here for ideas to stain the sticks). Rather than laminate the posters, I’m going to put them into plastic sheet protectors. By doing this, I can easily add or change out a poster and still recycle if it’s time to retire a poster.

Here are links to the free, printable posters I’ve found online for this school year.

Mars Help Wanted Posters from NASA

If you want to get kids dreaming about the future, check out NASA’s help wanted posters. These jobs will require a significant relocation to Mars. How exciting! The colors and graphics of these posters are rich and stunning, inspiring future astronauts everywhere. You can even share how you’ve used these posters with your students by using the social media hashtag #MarsPosters. Check the NASA Be A Martian campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
