Signs - understanding them
Looking at different signs and their interpretation
Information boards on tracks are often used to communicate rules and warnings. They must command attention and appeal for people to take notice of them.
Think about some of the warning signs you have seen, what if anything made you first look at them and then read them. Was it the use of simple direct language?
People often have more respect for rules if they know the reasons for them.
Draw the following sign and then answer the question beneath (use words and pictures)
Do not drink the water from this stream
and another sign
Please do not feed the Keas
Why (explain why)
Use graphics and universal symbols to create the following sign

Create a message pyramid
Using the 3-30-3 Rule (a descending order of message importance eg. Visitors can receive a message in three seconds, thirty seconds, or three minutes) - create an interpretive panel sign providing information for visitors who want to ride the Otago Central Railtrail.
This can be completed either in the form of a poster (paper supplied) or on a powerpoint slide.
