As I was going through this lesson I knew as soon as I read the "Teacher Presentation and Discussion" section what I would do for a handout. And THAT made me happy! Some ideas come instantly and others... not so quickly. This is another super easy handout to put together! All you need is some white paper or heavy cardstock like I love to use, some colored paper of your choice, and your printer & computer!
Here is the text (not the title) that's on the handout so you can copy and paste it into your own Word doc:
The skull and crossbones is the universal warning symbol for a poisonous substance. People all over the world recognize it as a graphic warning of what can happen to them if they take the substance into their bodies. Latter-day prophets have warned us of another kind of contamination that can be deadly, not to our bodies, but to our spirits and minds. The mass media—television, radio, movies, magazines, and newspapers—communicates to many people at the same time. These media can be used to further the work of the Lord on earth, to educate, and to entertain. But they can also be used to destroy. They are a chief tool of the adversary, who seeks to break down moral behavior in all of us.
Once you have the wording and the title how you'd like then just print it onto your colored paper. Here is the link to the font I used on my handout. I love grungy fonts and this one went perfect for this handout. Now once you have the wording printed out you are ready to add your skull & crossbones. Yay for FREE clipart! I found this one here. You can copy & paste the image into Word then resize it to fit on your handout. Once you resize it then print it out on some heavy cardstock and carefully cut the image out leaving a small border. This looks better than trying to cut up against the black line. After I cut it out I attached it to the handout using some pop dots or foam tape so it stands out a little for a 3-D effect. The fun extras are optional of course but since these handouts are for Young Women I added the hot pink zig-zag stitching with my sewing machine and a little pink tie bow. DONE!!! How's that for quick, easy, cute and effective???
