Scientist Wanted Poster
Scientists are people who learn about the world around them through experimentation and observation. Scientists can be either men or women and can be any age. They come from a variety of different countries and backgrounds. You will pick a scientist (only one student per class may have any particular scientist) and will use the internet and books to learn more about him or her. You will use a graphic organizer to help you organize your information.
Then, using the information you discover, you will create an Old West Wanted Poster to share with others.
Information to include:
*Name of scientist (first, middle and last)
*Birth date and death date (if applicable)
*Country of origin
*4-7 basic facts about your scientist’s life
o Where they went to school or college (if able to be found)
o Any other jobs?
o Family information
*Did your scientist have any accomplices? (people he or she worked with?)
*Is there anything named after your scientist? (museums, schools, etc.)
*Picture of your scientist (can be hand-drawn or copied from internet)
*Drawn symbols that represent things about them and/or what they worked on
*Any technology worked on or invented by the scientist
*Scientist’s greatest accomplishment (what did he or she discover? What is his or her greatest contribution?) This will be what he or she is “WANTED” for.
*Any other interesting facts you would like to share
**You will also come up with a reward – this could be something like “5 Beakers” or something related to the scientist’s actual discovery**
Read the full assignment below and choose a scientist to research. Be sure you look over the rubric before completing your poster.
