Many students struggle to see themselves in the classroom, especially in science. What they don't always remember is that anyone can be a scientist! This is a fantastic first day or week of school activity to do with students. Students will first see what scientists around the world look like, and then choose a field that interests them and create themselves as a scientist in that field. I put up their pictures all around the room so they can be reminded daily that they are scientists. It's a fun, intriguing activity that sets the tone for the whole year or even as a "rainy day" activity.
