Safety Considerations

It is important that students always think about safety when conducting a science investigation, and this slide may be used to review safety with your class before starting the activity. Also, keep the following points in mind.

  • Always follow your district and 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 goggles, is available.
  • Continually monitor the area where the investigation is being conducted.
  • Glass slides should be discarded in separate containers designed for disposal of glass and sharp items.
