Lesson Plan Title : Friendship Poster

Age Range: Grade 6 through grade 8 (Middle School)

Overview and Purpose: Students use Microsoft Word to create friendship posters. They create phrases using the WordArt program and then arrange those phrases on construction paper to create a poster.

Objective: The student will be able to use the computer to create a friendship poster.


Microsoft Word access for each student


Construction paper




Have the students use WordArt in Microsoft Word to create words that describe friendship. After they are finished, they can print their words, cut them out, and arrange them on a piece of construction paper to make a poster. You might want to make a list of some of the more common words that are used to describe friendship and tell the students they cannot use them, e.g., nice, kind, and friendly.

Wrap Up:

This activity could be modified so that students must include an adverb with each adjective that they use. You could also make it more personal by having them describe the traits that they would like to have in a friend.
