Our little scientists!
We began using our science journals last week. Students were asked to think about what a scientist is, who could be a scientist, and what scientists do. Each student recorded their thoughts by drawing pictures. It was awesome to see that some scientists were girls and some were boys. Most students drew their scientists with some kind of tool. After sharing some of their journal entries, we talked a little about scientists and who could be a scientist. Once one student recognized that they "do science" and that they are a scientist, other students chimed right in-recognizing that they "do science" too and now see that they are scientists too!
