Scientists. What are the different kinds of scientists? What are the different fields of Science? What do scientists do?
This unit takes a look at the different branches of Science. This would be a great Back to School Science unit or an End of Year culminating science project. This unit is a great introductory activity to the world of Science. Students are provided with a list of over 50 types of Scientists. They choose ten scientists to investigate further. There are graphic organizers that help frame student research and direct them into thinking more deeply about the jobs their scientists would engage in. The unit culminates in a visual arts poster showing the scientist engaged in their work environment. Criteria sheets and student samples are provided.
There is no teacher prep required.
This is an interdisciplinary unit of reading informational text, expository writing, critical thinking activities in science and a visual arts project.
