Tools of Science Inquiry that Support Life Science Investigations

Full Description: 

This article, published in the National Science Teachers Association’s journal Science and Children, describes the important role that simple tools –such as trowels, hand lenses, terraria, measuring devices, and tools for recording and representing—play in helping teachers engage preschool children in rich explorations of science and deepen their understanding of living things.  The article suggests what a “science toolkit” might contain and offers ideas of where to buy these tools.
