Students of all ages love the game, GO FISH! This is a card game played like GO FISH with lab equipment. Each card has a name, picture and use of an important piece of lab equipment, and students try to collect all four identical cards to make a set.
As students play this game they will (painlessly) learn the names and uses of science lab equipment. They should be able to recognize a flask and know that you measure precise amounts of liquids in a graduate--not a beaker!
This game is suitable and adaptable for kids of all ages. Keep several card sets out so students may play if they finish their work early. Let students have a game day as a reward, or just play a round as a challenge to earn bonus points.
