## ToolsPresentation Transcript

• By Jake Mills TOOLS Learning Center
• State Standards
• Science 2.1.2
• Math 2.1.11
• Collect and record numerical data in systematic ways.
• Goals and Objective
• Students will learn how to use tools, like a thermometer, ruler, magnifier, and a balance.
• Students will use the tools to collect data about objects at the learning center, then record their data on a sheet of paper.
• After students used the tools and recorded the data, they will write what information the tool gave them about the object.
• Directions
• There will be four different stations in this learning center. One station for each tool. You will be given four index cards, one card for each station.
• Each station you will have to collect information about the object at the station, then record it on your index card.
• On the back of your index card write about what information the tool gave you about the object.
• Station 1 (Thermometers)
• What tool are you using?
• What object are you measuring?
• What is temperature in Fahrenheit of glass 1?
• What is the temperature in Fahrenheit of glass 2?
On your note card answer these questions Use the thermometer to gain more information about the glasses of water. Measure the temperature of glass 1 Measure the temperature of glass 2 Answer the questions to the right on your note card. Remember to write about what information the tool gave you about the object.
• Station 2 (Rulers)
• Measure paper 1 and 2, then measure the index card.
• Measure the length and width of all the objects. Record your data in inches. Round to the nearest inch.
• Remember to write about what information the tool gave you about the object on the back of your index card.
• What tool are you using?
• What object are you measuring?
• What is the length and width of paper 1?
• What is the length and width of paper 2?
• What is the length and width of your index card?
• Station 3 (Magnifier)
• Look at the penny, dime, and nickel with the magnifying glass.
• Record what information you found on the coins and answer the questions to the right for your note card.
• On the back of your note card write about how the magnifier helped you gain information about the coins.
• What tool are you using?
• What object are you measuring?
• What did you find on the coins?
• Station 4 (Balance)
• Use the balance to find which objects are heavier then the other.
• This station has a variety of objects so feel free to test out all of these objects.
• On the back of your note card write about how the balance told you which object was heavier.
• What tool are you using?
• What objects did you measure?
• Which objects were heavier then the other?
• Evaluation
• For your evaluation you will share what you wrote on the back of your index cards with the classroom. Not everyone wrote the same thing, so listen to what everyone wrote about the stations.
