Safety is essential in the middle school science lab but it can also be fun! In our Safety mini unit, students review lab expectations, learn the meaning of unintended consequences and create a colorful safety poster.

There are many terrible lab safety videos out there. Show your favorites to students and challenge them to come up with a new and improved science safety video!

Here is the Flinn Scientific middle school science safety lab contract that we modify for our classes.

For more creative fun, grab a copy of our top ten list of things NOT to do in the lab. Students come up with MANY creative ideas that will surprise you!
