This was created when I started teaching middle school to introduce them to the library. Each core teacher took their kids to the library once a month and had to create an information resources lesson for their kids. This is a very short and concise sheet on a famous scientist. They complete simple research to get information about a scientist of my choosing. I did not include a list of scientists but one could easily be obtained through google if you do not have enough. My students chose from a pile of folded papers in a basket.
It is fully editable and can be changed to suit the needs of your class and kids.
I could see using this as an extra assignment for points in a higher grade but it is really for upper elementary and middle school kids.
