What Is A Scientist?

After our introduction lesson about science. I decided to explore what and who a scientist is with the kids. I started of by drawing a scientist on the white board, we read What is a scientist by Barbara lehn. This is a good go along book to introduce what and who a scientist is.

After reading this book we did some brainstorming. I asked the kids three questions to help guide them to the write answers.
1. A scientist is...
2. A scientist can...
3. A scientist has...

Using those statements they were able to fill in the blanks and come up with many answers to fill our chart.

Lastly I had the kids make their own scientist to put into their science journals.

This is the only picture I had of the anchor chart my boys ended up erasing the rest of my phone :(

"I am a scientist because I measure"

Idea for this lesson came from First Grade Parade.
