We have a supply calculator that makes it easy to gather supplies for Mystery Science! You can access the calculator here!
How to Use the Supply Calculator
First, go to our supply calculator. Choose if you're a teacher preparing for the school year, or an administrator preparing for multiple teachers. (If you're preparing for multiple teachers, you can choose to view the list "By Classroom" only.)
Once you've chosen your role, choose your grade(s) and how many students you have in each classroom per grade level, then click "Generate list."
Once you've clicked "Generate list", you'll be able to see the supplies for each grade.
At the bottom of the list, we've included a small list of supplies that are assumed to be on-hand already.
How to Sort the List by Unit/Lesson
In addition to seeing the full list of supplies for each grade, you can sort the Supply List by individual units or lessons.
Once you've generated the Supply List, click the "View: All" button at the top of the list.
From there, you can choose to view "By Unit" or "By Lesson." (If you're preparing for multiple teachers, you can choose to view the list "By Classroom" only.)
