Two fun activities are included in this lesson. The first lesson includes an 11 x 17 sheet of LAB EQUIPMENT clip art, with a word box of the tools at the bottom. Students can fill in the names of each tool while the teacher is presenting each tool. The lesson also includes a 16 question set of composition notebook sized worksheets that encourage students to check out the LAB EQUIPMENT or use the 11 x 17 worksheet to answer "What am I?" questions about each tool.
I find it fun to tell the students a guest speaker is coming and then I head down to the office and put on a lab coat, goggles and gloves. I enter the room and let them know I"m Professor Tidwell, a scientist!
