Five Science Classroom Supplies

Clorox Wipes
Labs and hands-on activities can get messy. Using Clorox Wipes or some other kind of disinfecting wipe will prove to be helpful in your science classroom. At the end of each week,  use them to wipe down communal spots like doorknobs, computer keyboards, classroom phones, etc., to keep away germs and other bacteria. This science classroom supply will not only keep your classroom clean but will also help to keep germs away.  
Ziploc Bags
Every science teacher will use these all year long. They are perfect for storing science materials or trying to group materials by unit. They can hold electricity supplies, task cards, or tubs of playdoh depending on our needs for the day. They also can be used for the students if an activity takes longer than a class period. Put their names on the bag, and they are ready to be used the following day. Science teacher supplies for the classroom that have multiple purposes are always a win! 
Every science teacher needs to add ziploc bags to their back to school list for hands on activities and classroom storage.

Desk calendar

I need this to organize myself. Having a fun desk calendar is always a top priority on my science teacher classroom supply list. While I am not a planner person, I rely on my desk calendar to keep track of assemblies, meetings, and school trips. I like having the month set out in front of me to know what is going on ahead of time. Being organized can be difficult, especially for the science teacher, but it is essential to keep your classroom running smoothly.
