At the beginning of the year we go over science safety, scientific tools and the scientific method. I didn't have anything I really loved for scientific tools, so I created a unit! I used it on Friday with my class and they LOVED it. We had some great predictions about what different tools were called or what they did. My class especially loved making the toolbox to include in their notebook. Check it out in my TpT store if you are interested.

I included 2 different versions. One where the picture, word, and definition were already matched up so students could just cut and glue their cards to add to their kits, and the other version where everything is mixed up so they have to figure out which pieces go together. I also included several ideas of how to use the pack as a whole class or as a station!
Do you use interactive notebooks? I would love to hear about them! I plan to post a lot this year about how we are using them in third grade... I know it always helps me to see other examples so I hope I can do that for other teachers as well. Have a great weekend,
