Title of Bulletin Board: What Is Your Skin Telling You
Category: Sun Safety
Suggested Grade Level: 6-8
Materials: Background paper, letters, varioius pictures of moles, sun graphic.
Titled “What is Your Skin Telling You?”, the bulletin board uses a bright orange border, background, and section headings, sunny yellow text boxes, a large 3D decorative sun from a teacher’s supply store and graphics collected from Microsoft Clip-art and Bing images to educate the reader on early detection, warning signs and prevention of skin cancer. Using copy gathered from a skin health pamphlet from a local dermatologist I displayed the information into five sections.
1. Skin is the largest organ of your body
Second Column “How To Examine Your Skin”: Focuses on the importance of plotting your moles by asking the question “How many moles do you have?”. It invites the reader to count their moles and offers useful information to successfully locate and plot a skin map. Images display a young man examining his front and back in a mirror along with images of a hand and feet to remind the reader to not forget these key areas while counting their moles.
To the bottom right of the second column I’ve added a bubble with the sentence “My Mole Total Is ______.” to complete the skin mapping process and engage the viewer.
A list of six health resources the reader can contact with questions about prevention, risk factors, or diagnosis is located at the bottom right corner to complete the bulletin board.
