I just put another packet in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
You know those times (in the first days of school) when you have those super-engaging, hands-on science lessons planned and you get a few minutes into the lesson and a couple of your precious angels have decided to use their science tools for some less than rigorous scientific exploration? Like maybe using the dropper to squirt water up their friends' noses? (True story.)
The activities in this mini-unit are fun enough to engage kids but simple enough to allow you to teach specific expectations for using those science tools.
(Like, I don't know, maybe DO NOT put the dropper in your nose).
There are 6 activities, complete with recording sheets, including:
- How Many Drops of Water Fit on a Penny (dropper)
- How Many Scoops Fit in Your Cup? (measuring cups)
- Using a Hand Lens to Match Tiny and Big Pictures
- Using a Balance to Compare Weights
- Making Kool-Aid "Fizz"
- Science Tool or Toy Sort
So head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to check it out!
I also made this freebie for you...
Have fun with your little scientists!
