Reflection: Safety Ensuring Lab Safety - Section 1: Hook - Identifying Safe and Unsafe Lab Practices


This cartoon activity highlights many nonsensical, unsafe actions.  My greatest advice is to not allow your students to go overboard and make a mockery of lab safety with this activity.  Encourage your students to have fun with the activity, but pay careful attention that students maintain their level of concentration on the real issue - lab safety.  

This introductory activity provides an ideal transition for you to review your lab safety behavior expectations with your students.

Remind your students to have fun, but to keep in mind that lab safety is not funny!
