MHS Chemistry
Safety Poster Contest

This project was developed in class in November 2004.  Topics will be drawn out of a beaker.  Each student will make a poster of the appropriate size, to be filled in below.  Students will develop a rubric in class.  I will type up, copy, and distribute the rubric/score sheet so students can peer-evaluate before the due date.  Classes will vote on the submissions for each topic, and the winners will be posted for the next year.
