Poster Guidelines
8.5" x 11" colored cardstock/construction paper (provided by teacher for uniformity)

The student will draw/paste a picture to represent their assigned element. You should have one
picture to show the Bohr Model of the atom, one for the Lewis-dot-structure, and one picture of the
element itself. It is only limited by the creativity of the student.

The following essential information about the element must be given - the symbol, atomic number,
atomic mass, and its common state of matter and color. This information should be neatly written or

You will also place the description, history, and uses of the element. This portion must be clear and
descriptive using complete sentences.

You should then decorate other areas of their posters but you must leave a 3/4" border of the
original poster color.

All segments of the poster must be clearly labeled.

Please make the poster so everyone that views it will understand the individual components
from several feet away.
We will follow the color combination from above.
