6th Grade - Science Safety Contract Mrs. Pitt
Science is a hands-on laboratory class. We will sometimes use materials that can be dangerous if not handled properly. To stay safe in the science classroom there are rules that must be followed. Any student who does not follow safety rules will not be allowed to participate in science activities.
1. Behave responsibly at all times. Fooling around will not be tolerated.
2. Tell your teacher about any accident or injury no matter how small.
3. Follow directions carefully. Ask questions if you don’t understand.
4. Do not touch any materials without permission from the teacher.
5. Never taste materials or put anything in your mouth in the science lab.
6. Handle fire with care. Do not touch burning materials and keep flames away from any other objects.
7. Keep your hands away from your face, eyes and mouth when working with science materials.
8. Clean up spills immediately. Water can be cleaned up with paper towels, for other spills ask your teacher.
9. If your teacher tells you to wear your safety glasses, do not take them off until the experiment is over and you are told it is safe to remove them.
10. Cooperate to keep your work area neat and clean. Pass items carefully. Return all items to their correct place when finished with them.
11. Do not smell, or blow on anything unless you are told to by your teacher.
12. Dress appropriately. Tie back long hair or loose sleeves when you are working with chemicals or fire.
13. When carrying science equipment pay attention to what you are doing and where you are going.
14. Be especially careful if you are using sharp, pointed or breakable objects.
