Introduce ANY science unit with "What is a Scientist?"
As a class, record on chart paper what a scientist is, can do, and tools they use. This file includes suggested responses to get you and your students thinking! Eventually, you want students to recognize that THEY are scientists, too!
Anchor chart reproducible allows students to record some of the responses. This would work great in a science notebook, at a science center or as an independent activity.
I've also included a science tools word search (with photos!) for early finishers or another extension.
