This activity can be used to introduce general lab equipment. I designed this activity for the first week of school. Use this activity as a presentation, lab station cards, study cards, or a journal activity. For each slide, there is a picture of the equipment, function and a brief task for students to perform. Equipment covered: beaker, graduated cylinder, test tube, test tube clamp, petri dish, hot plate, thermometer, microscope, stereoscope, hand lens, Florence flask, dissecting equipment, balance, lab incubator, gel electrophoresis apparatus, micropipette, and biological specimens. Teacher instructions are also included.
