Use this safety checklist as the basis for a mini lesson about medication safety. Ask students to complete the safety checklist individually. Then ask them to share and discuss their responses with the class. It would be great to have a nurse as a guest speaker to talk about medication safety with the class!
Topics covered include: doctor prescriptions, medicine cabinets, dosage amounts, trusted adults and rules for calling 911.
