This is a great research project for the end of the year. Students will choose from three products to create: a newspaper article, a poster or a digital slideshow. Students also present their project to the class when completed. Project format is word, so that you can edit and adapt it to your specific classroom needs.
Students can work independently or in pairs to research the life and work of 40 important scientists or inventors that shaped our world. This project includes student instructions sheet and a list of over 40 scientists and inventors that changed the world. It also includes a project score sheet and project checklist, and an introductory activity to help kids practice their research skills and make a smart choice about the scientist they are most interested in learning about.
My students love the creativity associated with this project and the student choice it affords them!
