This is the perfect intro to science project. I give my students lab coats and a huge list of specific fields in science and have them research their scientist. This shows science connection in basically everything and when the students start sharing and reflecting it is clear how many different methods of investigations there are. The research normally takes at least a day with computer access.
Plus the worksheets folds up to look like a lab coat and is wonderful to decorate the class with. Normally I require them to put a picture of their face on their scientist to add a personal touch.
SC.7.N.1.5, SC.7.N.1.3 How does the scientific field influence the method of investigation?
SC.7.N.1.6 How do scientists investigate questions, conduct investigations, collect data, and communicate their findings?
