Right Tool for the Job

General Science
Education Level
This lesson is designed to be part of a learning progression which lays the foundation on how tools and instruments are used in science and engineering. The purpose of this lesson is to encourage students to think about how using tools helps them gather information about the world around them.This is especially important at the nanoscale, where the objects are too small to be seen and the information we gather depends on the tools that we use. Having elementary students learn about tools and their purpose will allow them to build on these skills as they become middle and secondary students.
