The Historiography on Robert Boyle: Was Boyle the Progenitor of Modern Science?

Students participate in a warm-up activity by attending a football match writing an account of who won the game. They discuss how their account could differ from someone else's account of the game. They discuss how different people's interpretations compares to historiography. They read three different accounts about Boyle and answer questions about their similarities and differences. They follow up with studying Newton and comparing him to Boyle.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
