Welcome to the Scientists & Inventors Unit Study - CD
Personal Use: This item is for personal use only. You may use it for your own children as needed. If you are using the curriculum in a multiple-family co-op group or a school class, you will need to purchase the Classroom version of the curriculum.
Age Group: These unit studies are intended for elementary students ages Kindergarten - 5th or 6th grades.
This series is all about famous Scientists & Inventors
! As usual each study includes fun hands-on activities to go along with the unit to help students remember what they’ve learned, and also provide them with a fun reference too to review and recall each person they’ve learned about.
The Scientists/inventors bundle comes with 7 different scientists and yes, you can get through them all in one full school year. There are 8 lessons per scientist and the curriculum walks you through what to do each day. If you want to go through all of the units in one year I suggest doing a lesson twice per week. Of course you can do more/less depending on your schedule and how many you wish to complete as well. This curriculum is very flexible! Each day takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.
Each of my scientist & inventor unit studies contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the study. The lessons also include book reports, vocabulary, character traits of these important figures, and critical thinking skills. I currently have 7 studies in this series. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.
This study uses the scientists and inventors series by Mike Venezia, but students are welcome to use any other researched information they can find as well. I would highly encourage older students to do some independent research on their scientist and inventor prior to completing their final report.
In each study students will learn all about the scientist or inventor, their childhood history, lifetime achievements, characteristics, as well as some of their greatest inventions and contributions. Below is a sample of the Lapbook that students will create as they learn about each scientist. This one is for Benjamin Franklin. Activities for this as well as other units are similar to the ones listed below:
- All About Benjamin Franklin
- The New England Currant
- Franklin as an Author
- Famous Quotes
- Community Contributions
- Benjamin Franklin on U.S. Currency
- A Final Report
Each study also includes a final report on the scientist for students to complete. There are several different formats of the report to accommodate varying student grade levels that might be completing the unit.
