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 students. 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 older students. Either way, students should follow reading with narration about the scientist. 

Charlotte Mason encourages studying one person at a time. The goal is not to be an expert on every influencer, rather, to become familiar with a few per year. Slowing down and narrowing your focus to a single scientist will result in absorbing the beautiful contribution of one life.
