Wanted Posters: Math Idea from Across the Hall

The teacher across the hall had a cute display up that I thought I would share. All it takes is some brown paper, a little crinkling, a marker, and some math skills with imagination!

Students created a wanted poster about a number and then completed a few lines describing the number and why they were wanted. I thought that this idea could easily be adapted for students to describe multiplication facts (such as the many disguises of the number 12-- 2*6, 3*4, etc.), factorization, among other ideas. 

Posted below were a few of my favorites!
