HANDS-ON LAB SKILLS/SCIENCE INQUIRY Science Inquiry Scientists use MANY different tools while they are observing and conducting experiments. Here are some tools scientists use: Scientists use a RULER to measure the length of an object that is small, like a paper clip. This paper clip is 3 centimeters in length. Scientists use a MEASURING CUP to measure how much of a liquid there is. This measuring cup is filled with 5 ounces of water. Scientists use a CLOCK to tell the time and to measure how long it takes to do something. This clock shows scientists they are beginning their experiment at 9:00. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

Scientists use a HAND LENS or magnifying glass to see something really close. Scientists are able to see the tiny veins on a leaf if they are looking through a hand lens. Scientists use a THERMOMETER to measure the temperature outside and inside. This thermometer shows that it is 10°C outside. Scientists use a BALANCE to measure the weight of an object. This balance shows that this block weighs 5 grams. Sorting Objects Scientists often put objects into piles or groups based on their color, shape, texture, size and weight. When a scientist puts objects in certain groups, it is called sorting. Scientists sort objects when they are observing and comparing objects. Scientists sometimes sort objects based on their COLOR. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

These objects are sorted based on their COLOR: Scientists sometimes sort objects based on their SHAPE. These objects are sorted based on their SHAPE. Scientists sometimes sort objects based on their TEXTURE. Texture is the way an object feels. Scientists may put objects that feel rough in one pile and objects that feel smooth in another pile. These objects are all soft to the touch. Scientists sometimes sort objects based on their SIZE how large or small the objects are. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

Scientists also sort objects based on their WEIGHT. Scientists use a balance to weigh objects before sorting those objects based on their weight. Safety in Science Here are some important safety rules to follow when doing an experiment: Listen to everything your teacher says before you begin your experiment. ALWAYS wear your goggles to protect your eyes when conducting an experiment. NEVER taste anything when conducting an experiment. Use all equipment carefully. If you spill anything - clean the spill up quickly. Wash your hands very well when you are finished. If you have any questions during your experiment, ask your teacher right away! © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
