This Science Video Worksheet is one page and has an answer key in a very simple format that is designed for quick correction.

The video is an introduction to scientific instruments for Elementary and Middle School students: microscope, telescope, balance, graduated cylinder, metric ruler, thermometer and timer. The focus is on how to measure weight, volume, distance, temperature and time using the metric system.

Per NGSS, we do not define the term 'mass' for Elementary School but we introduce it. This video is only an introduction, it is not rigorous (e.g., we do not talk about a meniscus when reading a volume in a graduated cylinder).

We made this video and it is free to access on our YouTube channel, which is designated for children's content: Intro to Scientific Instruments for Elementary and Middle School students, NGSS 3.MD.A.2, 3.MD.B.4 - YouTube

For this video's content, we have noted the following Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): 3.MD.A.2, 3.MD.B.4

This may be useful for in-class or at home completion. It may be convenient for lesson planning for a substitute teacher, especially if needed on short notice.

Compared with a lecture or textbook, our videos are designed to be a slower pace, so they are less intense. Students may find them most helpful to view the night before a topic is introduced in class so that they are familiar with the vocabulary and key concepts. Many of our videos have footage of rare views or events, so that they are somewhat edutainment in style to make them enjoyable to watch at home.

Best wishes,
