You may know Beatrix Potter for her charming children's tales like Peter Rabbit and Tom Kitten, but did you know she was also a scientist? Introduce your students to Beatrix's fascinating contributions to botany with this engaging lesson!
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 Beatrix's work
*Directions for a science experiment that lets children get a taste of what Beatrix did
*A lab report worksheet for students to share their findings
*Writing prompt and matching writing page
The lab, which requires only the included plant photos and report page, is 1st Grade Next-Gen Science friendly! (Identifying parts of a plant and how young and adult organisms are alike/different)
It would also be perfect for any class that is studying PARTS of PLANTS or taxonomy.
This package is perfect for grades 1-3 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!
