DIY Texture Hand Tools!

Hello Classroom DIY Friends! For most of us school is well underway and we are going full speed ahead this time of year. Lots of us find ourselves pinning projects to complete, good ideas and working hard to prepare our students for the challenges ahead. When I began preparing for an upcoming Science Unit, I was searching for a way to help young scientists with describing properties of matter. I really was searching for a tool the children could use when investigating. I could never find exactly what I was looking for so I created my own tool.

Items to Gather:

For One Texture Tool:
  • Texture Tool Printable
  • 1 Fly Swatter 
  • Hot glue
  • Items For Textures

1.  Print, laminate and cut the printables.

2. Hot glue hands onto the fly swatter.

3. Hot glue texture scraps onto the hands.

4.  Label your textures!

Other Tips/Suggestions:
Considering these are so inexpensive and quick to make I made several for my Kinder Science Teams to use when investigating. Each Texture Tool has different textures so each investigation will differ. These tools will be available for use when investigating and to use with notebooking. It is such a simple tool that supports young budding Scientists and supports ELL students as well.  

I hope you have as much fun as I did creating my Texture Hand Tools and get out there and start investigating,
