As science teachers, it is our responsibility to bring science to life for our students by exposing them to as much lab work and experimentation as possible, while maintaining a very safe environment. I stress safety from day 1 and continue to stress it throughout the school year.
Take your students to the lab on the first day to complete this short activity. It consists of 14 questions to help familiarize them with the lab. Answers are included.
Note: This lab safety activity is contained in a larger bundled package that I have called, The Ultimate Lab Safety Bundle for Science Teachers . The "Ultimate" bundle includes a PowerPoint presentation, notes for the teacher, notes for the student, lab safety quiz, this lab safety activity, a lab safety contract, and an emergency medical form.
This activity can be used with any science class and is appropriate for grades 4 - 12.
You will receive handouts that are ready to be copied and passed out to your students. You will receive both an editable Word document as well as a pdf form of the activity.
