This study presents the current state of sciences instruction in NEI North East Indian state schools, to what extent the laboratories are used in the instruction of the courses, whether students take active roles in laboratories, and some examples in relation to the materials that can be used in science laboratories and the laboratory tools that can be made with students. The present study, which is qualitative in nature, is also a material development study for sciences instruction. Data in the first section of the study were collected through a "semi structured interview form". The second section included review of literature for the tools and presented authentic samples that could be developed considering the environmental possibilities and conditions of schools. The study was conducted with 14 classroom teachers teaching fourth graders it included three state schools and one primary school. Teachers' views showed that sciences instruction was not delivered in accordance with the content of the course, thus students are made to memorize the disjointed information given to them. Therefore, it is highly important to disseminate sciences instruction laboratory tools that can be made by teachers with their students and even to educate prospective teachers about this issue.
