Student goal
1.
Video describing procedures for safety in science.
Listen to the video, list a minimum of fifteen procedures and give the reasons they are important.
2.
What safety guidelines are found in this article?
In addition to reference 2, research the information found here.  Create a Venn Diagram comparing the information presented in the two (use correct spelling, grammar, composition, and punctuation.)
3.
What are the universally recognized safety symbols?
Create a floor plan for the class room to show where each of these symbols should be placed.  Give your rationale.
4.
View this power point, and take notes in outline format.
Classify the safety principles found in the power point.  Identify the seven main categories.
5.
What first aid supplies should be available in the first aid kit in our science classroom?
Conduct research to identify the necessary first aid supplies for our classroom first aid kit. (Cite resources used) Create a shopping list, include prices for these supplies from local vendors.  Give the rationale for each supply you include.
6.
Students will create a safety shield poster.
Survey these examples, and make notes on what you see.
7.
Demonstrate knowledge of safety rules and procedures.
Students will take a practical test of safety procedures.
8.
Identify the name and purpose of each of the science tools on the page in the "student goal column."
What are these gizmos?
