Hands-on investigations are a staple amongst third grade students. We spend more than 50% of our class periods putting things in the hands of students, and encouraging them to explore and share their experiences with their classmates. A one-size-fits-all approach to science tools and manipulatives is not what's best for our students. Many of the tools we currently have are not age-appropriate and are difficult for the students to read and understand. We have seen these difficulties year after year and have specifically chosen tools and resources that we know will benefit our students' understanding. For example, we use metric rulers throughout the year, and the rulers we currently have use both the metric system and the imperial system. There is also about a half centimeter space at the beginning of the rulers that shouldn't be used, yet our students still struggle with this. We have chosen specific rulers that use only the metric system and eliminate the half cm of unused space. Also, the thermometers and graduated cylinders we currently have at our school are appropriate for upper-grade-level students, but difficult for our third-graders to read. With your help, we will put the most age-appropriate measuring tools, models, and manipulatives into our third-graders' hands. They will grow in their confidence in using these tools, and will build a solid foundation on which they can build their knowledge and use of more complex scientific tools in the future.
