Tool Box Idea


Earlier in the year I posted about an activity that was done with a third grade class regarding science tools (see second picture). Later in the year I ran across the top picture of a "Readers Tool Box" and it got me thinking about combining the two.
I could easily see larger versions of the tools that the kids would have to cut out label and identify their use (on the back) and put in the "Tool Box". The box would then open and close with velcro (which I love to incorporate in notebooks!).
It is a bit late in the year for the idea but I can see trying it out next year. If you want to try it this year it would be a good end of year "tool" review activity in preparation for any end of year state test.

Hello, I love the science tool box you have. I am a learning coach and a parent of a 7th grader of a K12 virtual student, he dos school at home but is not considered a home schooler. We live in Florida. I was wondering if possibly you could please email me a copy of the tols or if it is available to download a copy. My son is making a interactive journal for notes and I thought this is a great idea and if you could help, thanks. My blog is http://takemebacktowhentheywereinelemenatary.blogspot.com Ginny

Hi Eve,
I was looking for activities to use in my 2nd Grade Class. I love your ideas about the Science Tool Box.
Would it be possible to get a copy of this activity?

THANKS
