Concept featured in clip: Chemistry
Location of clip: (DVD)

Summary of clip: Professor Slughorn has created different potions for the classes first session. He wants them to create a potion called the Draught of Living Death. The class then goes on to create their potions.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: The basic idea behind potions, is chemistry. The students are following specific lab instructions on how to create the specific potion, however lab safety measures are being overlooked.
Suggestions to teachers:

i. Suggested questions for students to when viewing the clip:
1. What potion is the class required to create, and what is the prize for the best one?
2. What is different about Harry’s book compared to others?
3. What is happening in the other student’s cauldrons who are “following the directions”?
4. How many safety violations can you see and name?

ii. Suggested activity for students:
1. A great time to go over the safety rules in the lab again, maybe even have a safety quiz with the video saying all the things wrong with it.
