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!
