Lab Safety… it’s no Accident

Today we’ll be going over some important information about your safety in a Lab setting. After review the Lab Safety rules (check the documents page for your specific class for a PDF version), take a look at the image below. See if you can spot some incidences of failing to follow lab procedures for safety.

Reminder there will be a “Common Sense” Lab Safety Quiz tomorrow for Biology and Chemistry

First Day of School

I know… I feel the same way.

Welcome to Mr. Kubuske’s Class Blog. First, please set a bookmark or a link to your home screen. After that feel free to browse this page. At the top are links to class pages where notes, assignments, and documents will be posted for you to download as we work through our curriculum. There’s a page for students, a page about Mr. K, and a soon to come weekly agenda page. On the right is links to my twitter and other info that will help you.

Next, there are 3 papers on the back lab table I’d like you to pick up. You will need to bring these papers back to class tomorrow so put them in a safe place. Eventually, these papers will need to go in your Class 3-ring binder.

Last, for today’s class activity, you’ll need to get a piece of string. The strings are on the old pencil sharpener near the bookcase. Please go ahead and pick up a piece of string and come back to your seat. At that point please put all your papers and other materials away and wait for further instructions.

As a reminder, you will need to download your iBook at home or in a place where you can be on a wifi network for a long period of time.

Thanks for participating and we look forward to working with you this year!
