Next Generation Science/Common Core Standards Addressed! CCSS.ELALiteracy.RST.9 ‐ 10.4 Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain ‐ specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics. CCSS.ELALiteracy.RST.9 ‐ 10.7 Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words. CCSS.ELALiteracy.RST.11 ‐ 12.9 Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.
Brick Grooving Tool Used to form a clean uniform groove between masonry such as bricks and cinder blocks.
Brick Scoring Chisel Used to score bricks and blocks so that they can be cut using a hammer.
Brick Tongs Used to carry one or more blocks or bricks to the location where they will be mortared into place.
Brick Trowel Used to apply mortar to bricks, masonry blocks, and setting the masonry units.
Brick Comes in a variety of sizes and colors. They are commonly used as the finish for exterior walls. Many have two large holes in the middle to enhance mortar adhesion.
Bull Float Used to eliminate the high and low spots or ridges left behind by the straight edge when striking off concrete.
Cap Block Used as the top layer on a cinder block wall. It may be flat or have a rounded top.
Carbide Tipped Masonry Drill Used to drill holes in masonry and concrete.
Ceramic Tile Ceramic Floor covering that is durable and long lasting.
Cinder Block Structural block which is used for walls, building footings, and to support floors.
Concrete Edger Creates a rounded edge on wet concrete which allows form removal without damage.
Concrete Finishing Trowel Used to produce a smooth surface on concrete.
Concrete Smoothing Tool Used to remove rough edges from hardened concrete.
Deck Block Large cinder block with a notch top. It is used to hold support beams for walls and decks.
Expansion Joint Placed between slabs of concrete to allow for expansion and contraction due to temperature changes.
Concrete Groover Used to cut an expansion joint partly through fresh concrete.
Magnesium Float Used to compact concrete and remove the bull float marks.
Mud Mixer Most commonly used to mix grout when laying ceramic tile or to mix small amounts of mortar.
Notched Trowel Used to apply grout to a concrete floor before laying ceramic tile in place.
Plastic Grout Float Used to apply grout between tile joints. The plastic edge will not scratch the tile surface.
Rebar Metal rods used to reinforce concrete. It has visible ribs that concrete adheres to.
Tile Cutter Used to score(scratch) ceramic tile similar to scoring glass. Pressing down on the handle snaps the tile into two pieces.
Tile Wet Saw Used to cut ceramic tile. Water is circulated onto the blade to reduce friction and keep the blade cool.
Tile Pliers Used to clip rough or crooked pieces of tile after cutting.
Tile spacers Placed between tiles when setting grout to maintain uniform lines.
Wire Twister Used to twist wires that hold rebar together when pouring floors, foundations and footings.
