Within our AVID class, my students spend a lot of time researching and learning about colleges and universities. They’ve given speeches, written essays, and researched multiple colleges in the last two years that I have had them in my classroom. Recently, I wanted them to create a college pennant, which is a common activity that I have my 8th grade students do each year. It’s fun and creative, but also requires them to do some research into a college. In the past, I have had my students create their college pennant on cardstock paper. This year, I thought that Google Drawings would be a great way to create a “new” college pennant.
To begin, I supplied the students with this template:

The students were asked to decorate the pennant and write interesting facts around the pennant. Here are a couple of the results:
They turned out great! It was such a fun, but easy (and techy!) assignment for my AVID students to complete.
Feel free to use and modify in your own classrooms!
