Much of homeschool science can be done using things you find around the house. However, a few critical lab supplies are not always easily acquired. This kit includes the most common lab tools that students will need to complete their science education.
Precision pocket scale that can provide accurate measurements for mass and weight.
Very small and surprisingly powerful for its size. The pocket microscope allows you to make observations.
A 25 ml graduated cylinder for taking measurements. Great when learning about volume, the Archimedes principle, or for measuring solutions.
Four Specimen Jars
Four airtight specimen jars for storing samples. These are in 4oz, 2oz, 1oz, and 0.5 oz sizes.
Dual Purpose Magnifying Glass / Scientific Ruler
The ruler, which is marked in centimeters is useful for calculating volume and length. The magnifying glass is a critical tool for examining samples and making observations.
A compass is important when studying the Earth's magnetic field, and is also useful when learning about magnetic and electrical fields.
Ultraviolet UV Light
The UV keychain is included because it helps to identify samples and to bring out details in specimens not easily seen under regular lighting.
It goes without saying that eye protection is a must in any lab activity.
A dropper is provided for working with chemicals. It is useful when studying diffusion, when creating microscope slides, and when mixing small amounts of chemicals.
A small mixing spatula for manipulating specimens and chemicals.
Tweezers for manipulating specimens.
