Students’ age range: 12-14
Topic: Safety Precautions in Exploring the Environment
Description: Engage - In groups, students will examine the picture and in a teacher-led discussion, identify the potential dangers seen.
Explore - In groups, students will discuss and record possible outcomes of the potentially dangerous situations identified, and the benefits of carrying out the safe practices in the picture. Students will share ideas with the class.
Explain - In their groups students will develop rules that if carried out will prevent the occurrence of harm/accidents in the laboratory. Rules will be shared with the other members of the class.
Elaborate - Why do you think this sign is used in some places? List potential dangers that may occur in other situations such as the home, restaurant and workplace and develop rules that would help to reduce potentially dangerous situations in the home, restaurant and the workplace
