Scientist Exploration

I put these tubs together from a variety of materials I have collected.  We used these tubs in our science lab to help discover some of the different jobs in science.  It was so interesting to see how the children investigated the materials in each tub.  As soon as I get permission to post pictures, I will.

Materials in the tubs: 
Vet: Melissa & Doug vet costume, ace bandage, stuffed animals, pet carrier, books about animals
Doctor: blood pressure machine, stethoscope, magnets to represent DNA strands, books about our 5 senses 
Geologist: a variety of rocks, eye protection, hand lenses
Physics: variety of magnets, magnetic gears, book about magnets 
Biologist: leaves, nests, dirt dabbers nest, hand lenses, turtle shell, books, file folder games
Paleontologist: dinosaurs, hand lenses, fossil, books

You can pick up the tub labels for free, please leave feedback it you do.  I know not all of the professions are provided, but those were the ones that I used. 

I hope this helps someone out there.
Happy Investigating!
