Biography of a Scientist

As a part of Arizona's Science Standards students are to learn appreciation for the scientific advances that have been made, and to recognize those important scientists. Our Harcourt Science book has a fantastic online library of biographies on many such scientists. I thought that a fun and short assignment would be for each student to learn about one of these scientists, fill out a mini-biography on him/her, and then share with their classmates. Once complete, I bound all the biographies into a class book that we keep in the non-fiction section of our classroom library.


This two-page printable and list of 35 scientists is available in my TpT store for a mere $1!

  1. Since math and science are so interrelated, I thought your blog would be perfect for both my husband (he teaches middle school science) and myself (I teach math). I look forward to some interesting articles.

  3. Hi Scipi! Thanks for the feedback on my Science Fair Planning Packet and for following me. What do you think of a "Biography of a Mathematician" project?
