Wondering how to display and store your Hands On, Minds On Science and Technology Centres?
My friend Tina sent me some great pictures of how she set up the Biodiversity Centres in her classroom. 

Hanging file container with instruction cards and
materials stored safely inside. Recording booklets displayed
 in bin beside hanging files.
Biodiversity Word Wall Cards displayed in pocket
folder behind centres storage.



Everything can be packed up and put away when the unit is finished. It will be ready to go for next year!



IKEA Trofast Storage Container works PERFECTLY for
small spaces and allows students to take the bins to
where ever they are working in the classroom.
I created labels for the front of the bins, printed in colour, laminated and attached them with removable adhesive.


Laminated cards are kept together with shower hooks. I put several sets, along with the materials needed, in each bin so that more than one group of students can work on the same activity at the same time. This also works well for when you students work in pairs.
I take everything out of the bins and store materials and cards in a banker box, and plastic bin. This allows me to change up what is in the bins in the IKEA storage unit.  We're ready to start Matter next week!



New poster sets available in my store.

When I started creating my Hands-On, Minds-On Science and Technology Centres a few years ago, I was determined to get them made so that teachers of single and combined grades would have way to address the expectations of the Ontario curriculum. This approach is engaging for students and manageable for teachers.  

I have written several blog posts about using centres in my classroom and have directed buyers to these blog posts, but I knew that a guide filled with pictures and suggestions would make the use of centres more approachable. 

Launching Hands-On, Minds-On Science and Technology Centres guide is a FREE download from TpT store.  If you already own any of my bundles, you can download the guide as part of a NEW BONUS file which is included with your purchase. Just go to the MY PURCHASES tab after you log in to TpT, find the bundle you purchased and download the BONUS file.

If you own any of the individual centres or are just interested, you can click on the image above and get your own copy of the guide for FREE.

Please feel free to comment with questions or additional ideas about how you have made Hands-On, Minds-On Science and Technology Centres work in your classroom.

I am making the lemon sugar hand scrub again, well actually, the students will be making it. Below you can read all about the ingredients you need and how to put it all together for a sweet Mother's Day gift. To download all the files you will need including the ingredient list, the card inserts and the labels, CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW.




This year I am using small mason jars for the sugar scrub so I created some tags which could be tied around the neck of the jar.  
If you would like a copy just click on the image below to download from Google Drive.


Don't you just love the chalkboard gift bags? I found them at a local dollar store. We used chalk markers from Chalkola to write a message to mom on each bag. I think they look awesome!

This was real favourite last year on Facebook, so I decided to create a slight variation on the Easter bunny Pop Art and allow students to create a variety of different characters.

The students found this project super easy to recreate. I provided them with some stencils I created by blowing up some FREE Easter clip art I downloaded from TpT. I chose images I thought the students would enjoy recreating. They traced the outlines of the images and then added the details using black markers. Links TPT stores for FREE images of the most popular images used by my students.  I just blew them up to 8.5 x 11 and printed Spring ChicksEaster PeepsEaster Clipart. You can find the link to the bunny here.













After doing the black line designs, students cut the images into pieces and glued them to neon card stock or to scrap book paper I had in my classroom.



I printed and pre-cut the inside of the eyeglasses template on neon card stock. Students could choose the colour they wanted to complete their piece.


I cannot wait to make a display with the finished pieces next week!
