Comprehensive Classroom Activities and Lessons All In One Convenient Package
- Developed by Science Kit product development team
- Grades 7–12
- Enough supplies for a class of 30
Address all the facets of physical science with Investigating Physical Science Kits. These innovative packages include apparatus and activities to fully explore a key physical science topic with an entire class of 30 students. Set up multiple stations, each with its own apparatus and accompanying experiment. Students travel from station to station in groups, applying the knowledge learned at previous stations to their following activities. Each of the experiments addresses a different aspect of the same physical science concept, so upon completion students have concrete, hands-on experience and complete understanding. A detailed activity guide provides instructions for each station experiment, and an included quick-start guide simplifies initial setup. And for your convenience, a durable storage system keeps all the apparatus, guides, and materials organized for repeat use. The stackable tote can be stored compactly with all other Investigating Physical Science Kits for a complete curriculum of activities.
The applications for this versatile set of blocks extend into calculating and measuring volume, mass, density, and more. Five sets of five blocks are included. Each of the five identically shaped blocks are made from a different material — foam, polypropylene, pvc plastic, plexiglass, and HDPE plastic. Use the blocks in experiments to teach measuring techniques for two and three-dimensional objects, calculations using significant figures, measuring mass and volume of materials, calculating and measuring densities of objects of constant shape and/or constant materials, and more. Includes teacher and reproducible student instructions aligned with the national standards.
