Famous Scientist Teacher Resources
Who do you think of when you hear the phrase “famous scientists?” Is it Charles Darwin? Marie Curie? Alexander Graham Bell, perhaps?
Our teacher team has curated and reviewed high-quality resources to bring into a classroom lesson on famous scientists. We’ve even found some great lessons and videos about scientists whose discoveries were instrumental in their fields, but whose names don’t come to mind quite so quickly—Nicolas Steno, for example, or Mary Sherman Morgan, the woman who saved the 1960s space race.
Augment a discussion on the scientific method with a video on the Presocratics, who developed a model for the way we learn about our world. You can implement a lesson that challenges learners to match scientists with their discoveries, or an interview project about famous and influential earth scientists.
Lesson Planet is the perfect research partner in your quest for strong curriculum materials. And who knows—the next famous scientist may be sitting in your classroom!
