Hazard symbols and lab safety

The lesson plan is included and may be adapted to suit your needs. There are 3 differentiated worksheets, to do this I project the names of the student (all generic in this case) on to the board and colour code them: i.e; Green= High/Med ability Blue= Low/ Specific AEN Orange= Literacy I place the sheets on separate tables telling the students where each colour sheet it (students do not know what each one means). They grab the correct sheets then return to their seats. One of the tasks is a codebreaker that is on the PPT, project when students start.

Year 7 - Introduction to Science: Lab safety & equipment.

These two lessons can be used to introduce year 7's to Secondary Science. The first lesson is a short lesson and simply covers the basic lab safety. The second lesson covers basic lab equipment, including the scientific drawings. Followed by how a Bunsen works. A worksheet is provided for students to label and i have created a 10 question quiz as a mini-plenary to gauge student progress. Finally, if you have time there is a basic heating water practical for students to try once they have obtained their Bunsen burner licence.
