Great! 4

Good 3 -2 You have used all of the space. Your work is mostly neat but there are a few rough edges. Your work shows me you care about what you do. Your poster is accurate but the content is basic. You have the three stages of the rock cycle and a brief description for each. Your work shows me you understand what has been presented, but you have not inquired further

Needs Improvement 1–0 You have not used all of your poster space. The work is thrown together or incomplete. Your work shows me you may not understand the subject.

Your Score

Your artwork is beautiful. I like the use of colors and the waves you used to represent weathering and erosion. I would like to have seen a larger model or maybe more information expanding to use more of the poster space. The explanations you gave here were enough to meet the main goals of the poster. Your work would be even better with more explanation. The poster needs to explain the unit and your understanding. Great Job! I saw the source material you used and your representation of the cycle is unique. You are quite skilled. It is worth noting that there is a market for science illustrators who can translate complex ideas into images.
