Science Teacher Supplies, Classroom Resources, and Materials

Science-based careers are growing critically important as human beings face planetary challenges in terms of nature and industry. It is, therefore, imperative that school science curricula prepare students for the future roles many of them will play.

Basic science concepts taught in elementary science classes include organization, cause and effect, the interaction of systems, models, scale and measurement, structure and function, change, variation and diversity. With so many examples in the physical world around them, students can be encouraged to measure and weigh common objects, make comparisons, test theories and create experiments that demonstrate each concept.

The great thing is most children enjoy getting messy and playing scientist. Take advantage of this openness to the subject by outfitting your classroom with useful science teacher supplies and other educational tools, such as microscopes, scales and thermometers, in addition to an ample selection of project ideas for scientific experimentation and building. This way, children can get hands-on experience while working interactively with partners or in groups to make observations, build scale models and make predictions about their experiments.

Teaching students about the inner working of the physical and chemical world around them is both exciting and challenging. Providing many opportunities for students to experiment with scientific concepts ensures that they learn the material and have fun simultaneously!
