Activity

Step 1
INTRODUCTION TO SAFETY

TEACHER NOTE: The following lesson is designed to create an awareness of safety within your classroom environment. It is imperative for students to adhere to the safety standards by working to create a classroom set of norms to be used within the Flite Test Curriculum as well as any classroom-based projects.

  • If a structure is already in place, add to it, or help students connect the current safety structure to the Flite Test STEM Curriculum.
  • Introduce the concept of safety and how it can make an environment more productive. See FT Safety 5 for literature around a basic safety concept.

        

  • Introduce the FT-Safety Posters (Attached to this lesson for printing), and state their obvious meanings.


  • If you have FT-Crafty Kits and materials, introduce the curriculum materials and their uses.



Step 2

CREATING THE NORMS

TEACHER NOTE: Guide the students to create 5 norms for safety when working on Flite Test Curriculum or equivalent. With the Flite Test work area complete, have the students create 5 or more norms to follow for the rest of the school year.

Some possible norms to include on a poster, use the Flite Test stickers as an option for decorating.

  • It is okay to fail and struggle in order to succeed.
  • Work together to achieve new heights
  • Scissors always pointed down
  • Review Safety Rules prior to every build time
  • Cutting procedures using X-Acto Knives.
  • Rules for Glue Guns
  • Always clean up your station when done
  • Wear goggles during flight testing
  • Organize our FT Workbench at the end of the day
  • Work Hard!
  • Always moving forward!
