In the classroom

  • Read ALL directions. Make sure you understand the directions.

  • Wear safety goggles when your teacher tells you to wear them. Wear them when working with anything that can fly into your eyes or when working with liquids.
  • Wear a safety apron when you work with anything messy or anything that might spill.
  • Wipe up a spill right away or ask your teacher for help.
  • Tell your teacher is something breaks. If glass breaks, DO NOT clean it up yourself.
  • Keep your hair and clothes away from open flames. Tie back long hair and roll up long sleeves.
