Science Safety Considerations
It is important that students always think about safety when conducting science investigations. This slide may be used to review safety with your students prior to beginning the activity.
- Always follow your district school safety guidelines.
- Have a clear understanding of the investigation in advance (practice any investigation with which you are not familiar).
- Make sure appropriate safety equipment, such as safety goggles, is available.
- Continually monitor the area where the investigation is being conducted.
Safety note: BURN HAZARD. If a lamp is used, warn students not to touch the bulb or any metal parts on the lamp to avoid being burned.
