How I Use This:
I love using the Science Mystery Box icebreaker in the first week of class to assess several things: student knowledge of science and safety tools, ability to work in team, and ability to follow directions. After determining how much they know about tool names and uses, I then will decide what activities come next.
Students need more metric practice? Try this Digital Metric Measurement activity!
Usually, the day after Mystery Box, we will review each tool name. I use the picture card without the name (projected on the big screen) and quiz the students on name/use/unit of measurement, etc. Then we will start the memory game. I allow students to play in groups of four. For lower grades/ability they use the sets that include a name. For higher grades/ability, they use the cards with the picture only and must tell me the name/function to collect the cards.
These can be used as flash cards, matching games, pictionary prompts, or anything else you can dream up!
