Kitchen Hazards Flipgrid Style

Before I even think about letting my students into the kitchens to cook, I want to be sure they have a good working knowledge of the do’s and don’ts associated with kitchen safety. Kitchen Hazards Flipgrid Style is just one of the activities I use to convey and reinforce that concept. There are a lot of things I like about this activity. First, it’s mostly student-directed, secondly, it uses technology and third, it involves a variety of the 4 C’s: collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.


  • To introduce this assignment, show students the video “Guy’s Kitchen Do’s & Don’ts” from the Food Network to illustrate what they are going to be doing.
  • Download the Flipgrid App if necessary and provide students with the necessary code.
  • Assign students’ their kitchen safety topic. This assignment can be done individually or with a partner depending on your class size.


  • iPads or Devices that can record video
  • Screen & Projector
  • Kitchen Props
  • Flipgrid App & Account
  • Quizizz


  • Students will plan their kitchen safety script and video and gather any props they might be using. They need to make sure they have included both the Do’s & Don’ts to their topic.
  • Student view the Flipgrid tutorial before recording so they know what they are doing.
  • Record videos using the Flipgrid App & code and then save it to the grid.
  • On the second day, students view each other’s Flipgrid videos and complete the Safety Hazards Chart.
  • Students then apply their kitchen safety information to Quizizzscenarios which we discuss afterwards and eventually they will have a test assessing their knowledge of kitchen safety.

    Hi Kim, this looks like a very engaging way to teach kitchen safety! I was wondering if you have a specific resource that you use for students to research their kitchen hazards, or do you just have them look on the Internet for their own resources and information? Thank you so much!

      I do not have a specific resource that I use for this project. Most of the students just use the internet to search for ideas, but they can also use any classroom resources I have.
