Instructional Ideas
  • Hand out to your science class before they enter the lab for the first time, or during the first week of school
  • Blow up some of the rules pages that pertain to your lab, and use them as posters for kids to reference throughout the year
  • Project the charts onto a whiteboard and have kids fill them out as a class

  • Pictures of symbols are vivid, and come with explanations that are easy to understand
  • Assessment addresses topics that are relevant to any science class
