THINGS TO HAVE IN THE CLASSROOM Over 35 years of teaching I have found that it makes life easier if I have the following handy in my Geology room. Plain paper Graph paper Rose diagrams  F Tally sheets  F Original data sheets F These are for students to write their data onto as they collect it.  If not given these they will often “improve” their data when writing up their experiment Crayons in sets of 4 colours Protractors Compasses for drawing circles 30cm rulers Scissors Hand lenses Acid bottles Small brush and pan (mostly to clean sand off the desk tops) Cloth for mopping up water funnels beakers measuring cylinders trays  containing 25 10cm by 7.5 cm card boxes which are lettered from A to Y  (for samples for tests and description)
