Introduce your students to Katherine Johnson: An amazing physicist and fantastic mathematician with a life story that is sure to inspire future STEM students to follow their dreams, regardless of the opposition they may face. (Yes, if you're wondering, she's one of the awesome scientists featured in Hidden Figures!)
In this package, you will receive a beautifully designed PowerPoint presentation that is ready to show to your class AND includes:
*Information on careers related to Katherine's work
*Directions for a science experiment that lets children get a taste of what Katherine did
*A lab report worksheet for students to share their findings
*Writing prompt, template, and work page
The lab is very easy to prep as it only requires basic supplies like copy paper, masking tape, clear tape, paper clips, and the included report page! It's great for any class studying basic principles of physics and engineering.
This package is perfect for grades 1-6 and represents a week's worth of science instruction (at least in my classroom). I hope your students enjoy being inspired by women in STEM as much as mine do!
