Notebook Activity Idea - Posters

This was an activity I did with students where we discussed lab safety. I made flip safety symbols using the greeting card format in Microsoft Publisher. I had the students try and guess what the symbols meant and they wrote the correct thing underneath each tab. Below that I had students take notes regarding general lab safety rules (there were ten in all). Their right hand assignment was to create a lab safety poster focusing on one of the ten lab rules of their choice. They had to list three reasons why the rule was important on the poster.

I love this idea and plan to create something very similar. Did you use Microsoft Word to create the flip images?

I did. I changed the paper layout to landscape and then put the images into text boxes (which allowed me to move them around easily within Word). I dragged them to the bottom of the page so that when it printed out I could fold the top back and have the students cut between the images for a flip layout. This was our first "flip flap" experience and the students liked it a lot.

Where can I get the symbols?
