Teach your students about the important of science safety before conducting experiments with this 18-slide instructional slide deck.

Science Safety in the Classroom

Are your students excited about getting more hands-on in your science classroom? While hands-on experiments and investigations are an exciting (and important) part of understanding different scientific concepts, it is important that your students understand the expectations and science safety rules to follow in the classroom.  

Teach Starter has created a set of teaching slides with integrated checkpoints that you can use with your students before diving into the fun experiments that you have planned for the year. This slide deck covers topics such as:

  • Preparing for an experiment
  • Lab equipment
  • Being organized
  • Reporting accidents
  • Protecting yourself

And more!

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your science lessons. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by encouraging them to role-play different science lab scenarios.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Students who need a challenge could take the information learned and write scenarios where students are or are not following the safety rules.
