This is one of our many FREE student handouts: General Lab Safety. This is meant to go with our Amoeba Sisters General Lab Safety video on YouTube. [Important Note: All of our free handouts are freely available on www.AmoebaSisters.com/handouts and this is just one example of one of our free handouts---but the answer keys we sell that correlate to our free handouts are sold exclusively on TPT. Since TPT is our chosen platform for any products that we sell, we try to not double post our free items on TpT to avoid confusion. We posted this free one as an example of a free resource.]
This free handout connects science safety concepts with memorable cartoons as displayed in our free Amoeba Sisters General Lab Safety video. This handout not only is useful to assess student understanding about lab safety, but it also provides a way for students to identify the functions and location of safety equipment in their classroom.
We consider our handouts to be “recaps” of our video clips from our Amoeba Sisters YouTube channel. We use our video cartoons (drawn by Petunia) in our recap handouts to help students connect to the material after viewing one of our short videos. Many of the questions are open ended and require application behind them. Our handouts make great exit ticket activities so that every minute of class time is valuable. They are great formative checks along the way of student learning. If you decide to print these and do not want students to digitally annotate on them, we always design them to easily print front and back as they are never more than 2 pages.
We are passionate about students as creators, so our intention with these handouts is that they are an introductory interaction with the material and act as supplements to the more important tasks: involving students in creating with the content and experiencing hands-on labs.
