Yay and Yuck Poster

This is a way to introduce your students to a new chapter/unit, or the whole textbook/curriculum at the beginning of the year.

Provide students with a sheet of paper, which they will divide into two columns - one is the Yay column and the other is the Yuck column.

The students then look through the chapter/unit/book.  They will sketch pictures of things they're excited about (Yay) and things they're dreading (Yuck) on their paper. 

It's a nice way to give the students an overview of the upcoming material as well as get some insight as to how they feel about what's coming.

Idea from the 2007 Maitland Simmons Life Science Institute.
