Product Description
This activity based Science Lesson focuses on common safety and hazard symbols found throughout our society. First, students receive a fact sheet on 12 different safety/hazard symbols to discuss as a class or in small groups. Then students can design their own safety/hazard symbols based on the fact sheet templates. They will use the quilt pattern that is included and can make as many as the teacher decides is necessary to create a quilt. (100 patterns, for example, will make a small quilt so a small elementary class may have to make a number of patterns. Science classes at the intermediate level where hundreds of students are involved may only have to make one or two patterns. Big quilts are impressive.) Also included is a matching quiz and key which can be used to supplement any assessment of the actual product. Also included is a Symbol Record page that students can use to record where they observe safety/hazard symbols. For example, doctor's offices and hospitals have biological hazard symbols all over the place and common danger symbols can be seen on our roads. This activity makes the student take note. This activity has been used at the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th grade level with high success. The finished quilt can easily become an anchor chart.
