ABSTRACT
The article discusses plant safety tips when conducting outdoor labs and field trips in science classes. First is to avoid poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Second is to remember that any part of a plant has the potential to be poisonous or toxic. Third is to review symptoms of plant poisoning, including gastrointestinal disturbance, increased nasal and salivary secretions, itching/rash, pupil construction and muscle tremor. Fourth is to beware of some of the more popular and accessible plants that are in some ways poisonous, including apple, azaleas, bloodroot, buttercup, castor beans, crocus, delphinium, foxglove and holly.
