Product Description
This project includes teacher guidance and a detailed (and editable) student handout for a scientist pen pal project. It's great because you can use it again and again, modifying to your students' needs. You could even use it multiple times per year!

Students research a scientist's field of study and write them an email with thoughtful questions, then produce a poster to communicate their findings. Because of the research and communication skills, this project would be appropriate in both the ELA and science classroom.

The goals of this project include:
- expanding student views of scientific topics of study
- expanding student views of who scientists are
- encourage students to regard themselves as scientists and consider scientific careers
- developing communication skills

This was developed for middle school students but with a few minor edits could certainly be appropriate for high school.
