  2. Read instructions and follow directions.

  4. Do not enter the lab alone. • Do not conduct your own experiments unless approved by your instructor.

  5. All assignments must be turned in on time. • Assignments must follow specified guidelines. • Disrespect and derogatory terms directed at anyone will not be tolerated and will result in appropriate disciplinary action.

  6. Wear a lab apron to prevent chemicals or chemical solutions from contacting your skin or street clothes. • Label everything! • Do not conduct your own experiments unless approved by your instructor. • Report any chemical spill to your teacher immediately!

  7. Handle animals only as your teacher directs. • Always handle animals carefully and with respect.

  8. Never eat, drink, chew gum, or apply cosmetics in the lab. • Always label your samples with your name, date, and contents along with any other pertinent information. • Do not leave samples lying around. Always organize your work area and clean up your work area at the conclusion of each lab.

  9. Never work in the lab alone. • Do not enter the lab without permission. • Do not enter the lab without the presence of your teacher. • Do not conduct your own experiments without the permission of your instructor.

  20. Sometimes a lab may not turn out as your predicted. It is not the end of the world if your results do not support your hypothesis. You may learn more from getting nothing than if your experiment went exactly as planned… That’s the thrill of scientific discovery!!!

  21. Use extreme care with all sharp instruments such as scalpels, sharp probes, knives, etc. • Diligently take notes during any lab activity. Your observations will be extremely important when writing your lab report and identifying any potential sources of error.

  22. Handle all organisms with care and respect. • Take careful notes and document results.
