This week for Miss Tele’a’s inquiry task we were learning how to understand what a scientist is.
Scientists are individuals who conduct research and investigate the world around us.
First, we had to talk to our partner next to us and tell or ask them what a scientist is. Scientists are individuals who conduct research and investigate the world around us.
Next, Miss Tele’a explained 6 different examples of people who work and are scientists. The 6 different types of people were Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Jacqueline Beggs, Rosalind Franklin, Peter Buck, and Thomas Edison. Marie Curie is a physicist and chemist, Albert Einstein is a physicist. Jacqueline Beggs is an entomologist. Rosalind Franklin is a chemist. Peter Buck is an anthropologist. Thomas Edison is a scientist and inventor.
Lastly, we had to make a copy of a DLO that is an infographic of the scientist we chose. I picked Marie Curie because I don’t know her and I want to know a little more about her.
