5 Skills Taught By Science Modules

in Student

While students are enjoying the summer, educators across America are already thinking about the coming year, and how they will integrate the newest school science initiatives into their classroom. Through the use of short experiments known as science modules, your students will acquire far more than a simple appreciation of the school of science you are teaching in your classroom. Here are 5 examples of new skills that your students will learn during the science modules you are planning for them.

Proper Measuring Skills

There isn't a way of life on the planet that doesn't involve using proper measuring skills in at least some fashion. Even if your students somehow manage to find a line of work that requires no measuring skills whatsoever, basic cooking and hobby needs will see proper measurements needed all the time. Students rarely have any experience with these skills until they begin measuring out liquids and powders in the school science classroom.


Your students may already have a basic concept of neatness, but it isn't until they begin experiencing science modules on a regular basis that they will comprehend the importance of a neat workspace. While they are working their way through the instructions, neatness will become paramount for their ease of work. Students will begin placing items in particular places and practicing their neatness skills right in your science classroom.

Increased Vocabulary

Nothing increases a student's vocabulary quite as much as being confronted with a supply of unfamiliar terms in a science experiment. Your school science class will become a place where students are forced to take the words they see on their instructional paper and both understand and use them in a real situation. This will result in increased vocabulary skills over time, which may lead to even more vocabulary being picked up from curiosity.

Note Taking

The skill of note taking is not reserved only for those students who are college bound. As part of your school science experiments, note taking will introduce students to the concept of the scientific method and the proper recording of data from the experiment itself. As your students perfect their note taking skills, they will be picking up an approach all their own that will serve them in other classes during their educational career, and in the workplace beyond.


While working with science modules, your students will develop their planning skills for use later in life. These skills come to light in the fact that each group must plan out how they are going to make the fullest use of the materials they have been given and the time that is allotted to them. In some cases, this will mean that different students must work on different parts of the experiment side by side, and in other times it will mean planning to move along and take notes quickly. These planning skills will serve your students will through the rest of their lives.
