Chocolate Candy Bar
http://www.glassgiant.com/chocolate_bar/?l1=Charlie+%26+the+Chocolate+Factory&size=400x300
Use this for a chocolate infographic or for the literature book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Infographics for literature books could include an author profile, interesting quotes from the book, a synopsis of the book or a teaser, and a poll from students who have read the book. Students can mashup fiction with nonfiction in a literature infographic. For example, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a fiction book, pull out the nonfiction elements. How is chocolate made? Does it grow on trees (I wish!)? Where did it originate? And on and on and on!

Chalkboard Message

This might complement an infographic on how schools have changed in the last century.

Plane Banner

An infographic on advertising or airplanes might be a good place for this banner.
Snowglobe

This could be fun to use with any of the Gary Paulsen books that take place in snowy areas. Upload a snowy scene from Minnesota or from Alaska - ah, the Iditarod. An infographic on the Iditarod could be pretty fascinating, especially for our students here in the midwest!

Restaurant Sign
