a playground or an easy A.
It is a lot of work and
only those who work hard will
find that reward in their grade.
Most of you will earn a C.
A C means you are working at grade level. That is a good grade.
It takes commitment
and hardwork to earn a B.
It takes commitment,
hardwork and a great deal
of creativity to
earn an A.

DUST HAZZARD
Clay is the most dangerous when it is in a dry state and the dust can be inhaled.

Silica is an ingredient found in a wide variety of materials used by artists and crafts people including sand, and many types of stones.

Inhalations of large quantities of silica during the mixing of powdered clay is very hazardous and can cause silicosis or "potters rot" - "potters lung" after years of exposure.

Silicosis takes at least 10 years to develop and entails symptoms such as shortness of breath, dry cough, emphysema, and high susceptibility to lung infections such as tuberculosis.

Skin contact and ingestion pose no significant hazard.
Sanding dry clay can create a problem through inhalation of free silica.
ALWAYS WET WIPE EVERYTHING
