I liked the idea that was brought up during the summer workshop of using shower board, cut to the size of posters (I choose 18x24) and with a hole drilled into it, as a way for my students to present their findings from their group work. the Home Depot, and probably Lowe's also, will cut the board into the sizes that you need. I purchased two boards and was able to get twenty posters out of them for only $26, tax exempt throught my schools account. To hang the boards I used medium 3M Command hooks (can hold 3 lbs) and I can put two boards on each hook. So far this has worked great for me, but I have to be careful not to erase anything while moving the boards to the wall.I also have pencil boxes that I use to distribut the dry erase markers for my students to us. I have also considered distributing other materials as needed to each group by placing the materials in the pencil boxes.
