What is Scientist Study?
Children are born with all the curiosity they will ever need. It will last a lifetime if they are fed upon a daily diet of ideas.
Reading scientific biographies for leisure will inspire your children. The world has been shaped by positive contributions from individual scientists.
Scientist study can be done as a family read-aloud (picture book or chapter book). It can also be assigned as independent reading for an older student. Either way, encourage your student to narrate the contributions of the scientist.
