What is a balance used for? Measuring mass
What is a graduatated cylinder used for? Measuring the volume of a liquid
What is a beaker used for? It is NOT for measuring. It just holds chemicals.

What is the safe way to smell something? Waft it
What is the safe way to heat something in a test tube over a bunsen burner. Use test tube tongs and hold it high up over the flame to heat it gently and DO NOT point it at anyone.
What is the safe way to carry the balance. Carry it by the base, not the sensitive balance/measuring arm
