What is your advice about? Science practicals
1: Try it out first or at the very least see another staff member do it.
2: Make friends with the technicians- they often know more than Science teachers and will be invaluable.
3: Don’t be afraid to admit to pupils if something goes wrong – that’s Science.
4: Make it worthwhile. Don’t just do a practical for the sake of doing one.
5: If in doubt, demo it instead of getting the class to do it.
