Lab Safety: Hazard Symbols

This lesson introduces pupils to signs and symbols, why we have them and specifically symbols that are found in the laboratory. Pupils are asked to look at every day symbols and their meanings and to discuss why we have symbols. They are then introduced to 9 hazard symbols and their meanings. This lesson comes with a blank hazard symbols mind map to complete during the lesson. They must then carryout research for homework and record it on this mind map (we print it onto A3 paper). In addition, there is a set of hazard flash cards for a recall and a doodle task. test can be printed and laminated for reuse. They are great for revision also!

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.
