I think this can work almost at any grade level, but my first concern is to make sure we're teaching kids how to use infographics to enhance understanding, not obscure it. My biggest pet peeves about any sort of poster project, is that we don't always teach kids about what makes a good visual display of information, or how to put it together so the most important information is highlighted, etc. If you could instill some of those good information design ideas to kids in Grade 5, it will serve them well for the rest of their schooling and beyond!!

Thanks so much for sharing
