Lab Safety Poster Criteria:

Your task is to create a lab safety poster for your assigned safety rule (according to cell phone slot #). This project is worth 20 pts and will be graded based on the following criteria:

  • Clarity: The rule is clearly, and neatly stated
  • Imagery: You have a relevant picture to illustrate your rule
  • Creativity: You use color and /or mixed media
  • Presentation: On Monday you will give a 1 minute spiel about your poster and why that rule is important
*I will select some of the best posters to be displayed around the room *
