hannahfaithwatson
01:55:49
I am also curious as to what the "consequences” are for teachers for not properly labeling chemicals? Or if there are consequences. Does the teacher just have to make sure to always have these labeled in the future?
Jacob Welch
01:56:05
What do you do if your administrators do not have the SDS sheets? Should the teacher keep a copy of the SDS sheet in the lab?

delaneygoodman
02:00:55
If you're in a general education classroom, your kids eat snack in this setting. How do you follow the guideline of no eating in the science environment classroom at that point? Would you just follow students not eating DURING science time-?

kenzleedenton
02:04:03
If sending a safety contract home to the parents of your students. Should the appropriate clothing be included as well as a list of allergies that could be in contact with the students? If these aspects are not taken into consideration by the parents..what would be the next step?
Violeta Jaramillo

Lea
02:04:30

Peri
02:04:33
What precautions should we take in an elementary classroom when dealing with mild allergens or possible contaminations? Is there a way to prevent contamination since there is typically not a separate "lab" for these experiments?
Hannah Lee
02:04:45
Should you do a safety contract for every lab?
Madeline Wooldridge
02:04:53

Jessica Wood
02:08:18
How do you regulate "class pets" each year as new students come in with new allergens? What if you have an animal study on an animal one year but have a student allergic to it the next year?
hannahfaithwatson
02:09:32
Do you send a contract home before every lab that contains these hazards? Or do you send an overall contract in the beginning of the year to be signed for all of the labs?
Jacob Welch
02:10:31
If you’re in a general education classroom and that is the location of your labs, how do you regulate food and drinks in the classroom? Do ban food and drinks all together? Most elementary classes have some sort of snack time and allow water bottles in class.
Drew Brannan
02:11:34
If parents are allowed to visit in our school in younger grades such as kindergarten would I have to ask them to leave in the event of a science experiment that requires a safety contract?

delaneygoodman
02:14:38
Who are the best visitors? Should parents be allowed to come in during lab times? What if they focus solely on their child and then do not superrise the other students?
sarahkate
