Add a little STEM to your classroom with these Pennant projects! I created this project as a way for students to see who contributes to our society beyond the glimpses they see in their textbooks.
This product contains 2 copies of the Famous Scientist Pennant for students to fill out as they research (one in color & one in b&w). I have also included a diverse list of men & women scientists who have contributed to society so you don't have to come up with a list yourself!
After the students have filled out their Famous Scientist Pennant cut and hang!
Why this project? Why this list?
It is so important that students are exposed to the variety of men & women represented in the science community. I compiled the list of scientists to reflect the diverse community that scientists are. Too often we only see pictures of one type of scientist represented in our textbooks and while I have included those individuals on the suggested list of Inspiring Scientists, I have tried to include other individuals that might not gain as much exposure.
Some of the scientists are from the medical field while others could be considered inventers. A few of the men & women were included on the list because they were pioneers in their fields and paved the way for future scientists of all colors, religions & gender.
