Science Discovery Bag

goggles and flasks
The "Science Discovery Bag" is a way to give your students an opportunity to explore the many curiosities of the scientific world.

In the Discovery Bag, your students will find various books that explain how to do a simple Science experiment with items that are used in their household. Their family will assist them in choosing one experiment and practicing the experiment at home. Then they will fill-out the "Lab Report" in the Lab Book (located in the Discovery Bag). Each student receives a special scientific apron (he/she can color) and scientist glasses. These items become keepsakes after the experiment is performed.

Each scientist keeps the bag for two days. When taken home on Monday, he/she will return it Wednesday. A new scientist is selected on Wednesday and the bag is returned Friday. Scientists wear the special apron and scientist glasses when they present the experiment to the class.
