Olympic Spotlight Posters

cover image

Carel Press. Australian version distributed in Australia by LinksPlus, 2012.
Set of 37 posters in pdf form A4 and A3 size with optional Powerpoint presentation and jpeg images.
These posters are clearly presented with bright colours and eye catching images. Easy to read font, titles are bold and draw attention. The topics are very wide and varied, covering all aspects of the Olympic Games experience. A useful set of posters to spark interest and further exploration on the chosen topics . . . there is just enough information to make them interesting, and still more to discover.
The optional Powerpoint and jpeg files would be a handy addition to displays and lessons. The Powerpoint presentation is in a widescreen format, and I would use it as a digital display during the Olympics on my IWB. It is in a format that you can customise to suit your needs - for example I would add some background music and set an automatic slide transition for display purpose. Many posters have dates and I would envisage using the jpegs to create smaller cards to do a timeline activity with students.
Overall a clearly designed set of interesting facts, available in multiple formats for various uses.
