This is a PowerPoint I use at the beginning of the year as an intro into science. I teach 4th grade so for many of my students this is the first time they have ever had science on a daily basis. With their excitement to learn all things sciences comes many misconceptions about scientists.
(Scientists are crazy MEN who work all ALONE in LABORATORIES mixing CHEMICALS together)
My goal the first week of school is to give my students a new outlook on who scientists are and what they do. This powerpoint has been a great tool to encourage conversation and challenge misconceptions. :)
