What is science? What does a scientist look like?
In this free bundle, you will receive a handout, Prezi presentation (linked), and lesson plan for the "What is Science" activity. Many teachers, including me, have used this activity to kick the year off and facilitate an ongoing discussion that defines science while establishing a classroom atmosphere centered around inquiry and the idea that we all need to challenge misconceptions. I have students revisit their definition at the middle and end of each year to reflect on their changing mindsets, so this becomes a pre- and post-assessment of attitudes and perceptions of science!
