Reviewer Comments:

This set of materials includes an equipment matching activity that can be assembled, depending on the lab equipment used in your facility. There is also a series of stations where students can practice skills like wafting, decanting, reading a meniscus, and using a balance. Included is a movie activity where students roleplay safe (and unsafe!) lab behavior and finally, there is a true & false safety quiz. This lesson is useful in the classroom, after minor modification dependent on a teacher’s classroom. The resource would benefit from an added answer key for the safety quiz.
