Science Safety Activities and More!
This unit contains everything you need to teach science safety! I created this unit because I couldn't find any exciting, engaging science safety materials for my 4th and 5th grade students. All components of this unit are student tested and enjoyable!
There are several foldables in this unit that work perfectly with interactive science notebooks. However, you don't have to use interactive notebooks to use this unit. This unit is perfect with or without interactive notebooks.
Instead of using "Science Safety Rules," I opted to create "Science Safety Expectations." In my opinion, expectations are more positive than rules. My students seem to respond better to expectations. I used all of the safety rules that I felt were appropriate to my 4th and 5th grade students and rephrased them into expectations.
* Take care of your equipment
* Do not run, throw, or grab
* Follow instructions
* Immediately report all accidents and injuries
* Wear goggles, gloves, and aprons
* No eating or drinking
* Clean your lab station carefully
* Wash your hands
* Leave the room if there is a fire
* Never use broken equipment
I included the full-color science safety expectations posters that I use in my room. They are beautiful when printed in color. I had them printed at my local office store on 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock and put them up in my room. They look great and were very cheap to have printed!
