In the past, when I would ask my students to draw a scientist, most drawings were of a man in a white lab coat. We must let our little ones know that anyone can be a scientist! I project these 6 slides onto my classroom whiteboard in order to get this discussion going. After the slide show, my students draw a scientist - I love seeing the diversity! We as teachers need to always reinforce the idea that anyone can be a scientist! (This is not a Power Point, it is a PDF but I use it as I would a Power Point - as a slide show).
Scientists: George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Rosalind Franklin, Louis Pasteur, Jane Goodall
