Classroom Science Kits


Give your students an amazing hands-on science experience with minimum stress to you! A single kit can easily be extended to last all term with your students leading their own scientific investigations. The kits contain nearly everything you need to carry out several experiments with 30 students all getting hands-on. A handy table lets you see at a glance what resources you will need; most will be in your classroom already. The kits also contain detailed instructions, hints to make the lessons run smoothly, links to the NZ Curriculum and a 'Warning Science Content' section to help you understand the science behind the experiments you are teaching and so answer your student’s questions. To complete the kits there are several Black-line Master Worksheets for your students to document their experimental procedure, either individually, in groups or as a class. These kits have ideas to suit juniors and seniors and can be easily adapted for year 1 to year 8 students.
