Science Safety Considerations
Students always must think about safety when conducting science investigations. This slide may be used to review safety with the students prior to beginning the activity.
- Always follow school district and school science laboratory safety guidelines.
- Have a clear understanding of the investigation in advance.
- Practice any investigation with which you are not familiar before conducting it with the class.
- Make sure appropriate safety equipment, such as safety goggles, is available.
- Continually monitor the area where the investigation is being conducted.
