PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My elementary students loved looking at and making scientific drawings. For some, art was the beginning of their interest in science. This 2–part card set introduces 12 famous scientist-artists through their beautiful illustrations. Included are 12 drawings and 12 matching labels, as well as 9 book links to children's biographies of the featured scientists.

Drawings by: Copernicus, Galileo, da Vinci, Darwin, Newton, Franklin, Watt, Golgi, Ramón y Cajal, Haeckel, Hooke, and Agassiz.

I kept a rotating thematic display shelf in the classroom (a "mini-museum"), periodically changing pictures, books, etc. You might display the cards and corresponding books on little stands to inspire spontaneous interest and art work.

Use the pictures and labels for reading, a springboard for research, or inspiration in creating your own scientific drawings. Print, laminate, and use a paper cutter to neatly separate the individual cards and labels.

For more information on drawing in the Montessori classroom, see Part V in The Advanced Montessori Method, Vol. 2. Dr. Montessori discusses the study of natural science as a great help in drawing, which in turn increases the child's observation skills. She mentions the work of Ernst Haeckel specifically.
