PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Combine language arts and science with this scientific method mini-research project! Students research the lives and accomplishments of 5 people who are considered among the fathers of the scientific method and then write a report about their findings. This cross-curricular activity can last as long as you like depending on how much time you allocate for doing the research and writing. You can extend the learning by having your students give oral presentations about the scientists they researched. (This resource is also available in a Scientific Method Bundle, available HERE.)

Included in this product are 3 graphic organizers for students to help them plan their writing: one for note-taking as they conduct their research, one for pre-writing to help them organize their information, and one for listing the sources they consulted. A page with objectives and instructions for students is provided, as is a page with background information for teachers about the 5 fathers of the scientific method; these pages come in both color and black-and-white versions. An assessment checklist for evaluating students' reports is also included. Images of the 5 scientists, which can be used by students in their reports, are available in large and small sizes. A page listing the ELA Common Core standards that are addressed and another page of example Model Performance Indicators (MPIs), for teachers who have ELLs in their classes, round out this product.

This mini-research activity lets students learn about some important scientists AND gives them practice in writing research reports!
