I survived my 1st week of school! Yay! I am so totally exhausted but we’re off to a great start so I’m happy. I’m dropping in with a quick post to share some resources that I found that are great for starting off the year in science.
I’m not sure why, but last year I had trouble finding resources for science tools and lab safety. Last year I showed this video from YouTube. It’s really intended for older kids, but it worked for my 3rd graders.
I recently came across this one. It’s kind of corny and made us laugh. It’s sung to the tune of Call Me Maybe so the kids were able to get into it. In fact, they begged me to show it over and over and over again. I think I have it memorized now.
I also came across this pack from Christina Cottongame at TpT. It is A.Ma.Zing. To me, the best part is the adorable science tools foldable. Plus, Christina includes lesson ideas for teaching about tools and safety, foldables we can add to our science notebooks, and handouts.

I hope you enjoy your long Labor Day weekend!
