*Infographic created by Esther, Grade 8
Hey 8th graders!
Here’s everything you’ll need for our next project.
Infographics are used quite a bit in reporting health news, as they’re a visually appealing way to get facts and statistics out to the community.
Here are some samples…
Today you’re going to create your own and demonstrate advocacy by taking your posters to a whole new level.
Project: Create Your Own Infographic- Analyzing the Influence of Technology
NHES 2.8.6- Analyze the inﬂuence of technology on personal & family health.
NHES 8.8.4- Identify ways in which health messages and communication techniques can be altered for different audiences.
Your task: pick one of the topics that we’ve been discussing during our technology balance unit, gather some research, and create an infographic to get your point across.
Here are some possible topics…
-Tech balance/ face-to-face communication
-Time management/tech distractions
-The benefits of video games
-Mindfulness in a connected world
-The influence of social media
Pick a topic that interests you, do a little research, and find at least four facts or statistics to include in your infographic. And leave the reader with some useful suggestions and tips to handle any challenges.
Then use one of these easy to follow programs and get started…
Remember the tools for effective advocacy… don’t forget your audience, make sure your infographic looks good, and cite your sources at the bottom (people respect you more if you back up your facts!)
