This powerpoint presentation discussing the different types of tools scientists use during an investigation. It discusses several tools (hand lens, balance, Scale and more) in detail, and explains what they are used for, how they help, and who would use them.
At the end of the presentation, there is a "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" like interactive game that students can play with the teacher or by themselves at a center. The powerpoint and interactive game is aligned with Common Core State Standards for second grade, and is based specifically on florida state science materials but could be good for many states and grades.
I hope you enjoy. Please comment :-)
