Want an easy and engaging first week of school science lesson? This activity sheet is a great way to start off the year. Students will get to explore 7 different science tools: hand lens, forceps (Tweezers), measuring tape, measuring cup, magnifying box, thermometer, and dropper.
In groups or partners, students will get to explore each object recording what they think the name is and what its purpose is for a scientist. The next day, have a name and purpose reveal. Students will get to see how close they came and if they had an idea of why it is used. Students can even record the names and purposes on a second copy of this recording sheet.
