Second grade content standards in our district call for students to "compare the lives and discoveries of scientists of different cultures and backgrounds."
This PPT is the the final one (sixth) in a series created to help students learn about scientists from different cultures and backgrounds, as well as to help them visualize a timeline of events throughout history in order to place the contributions of science into a meaningful context.
This one teaches about the following scientists:
Grace Murray Hopper
Includes a one page summary for each scientist that you can give out to the students to allow them to read and highlight as they answer the quiz (also included).
Great for finding information in the text, critical thinking, making connections, and making inferences!
