Teaching & Learning Company Great Scientists in Action, Grades 4-8

How much do your students know not only about the accomplishments, but also the backgrounds of famous scientists? Your students will be inspired as they discover how hard most great scientists had to struggle to succeed. The lives of Aristotle, Isaac Newton, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and many others, will inspire students that it isn't always the students with the best grades in school who turn out to be the scientific leaders of their generation.

Students will enjoy doing the simple but interesting experiments suggested to make discoveries about everything from gravity to making peanut butter. An answer key is included at the back of the book. Softcover, 64 pages. Grades 4-8.

A 4/5th grader will enjoy the experiments with some adult supervision and a 7/8th grader could work mostly independently. There is an experiment for Pasteur which includes growing bacteria which an adult should supervise. The lesson on Darwin focusses on how plants and animals adapt to their changing environments and does not discuss evolution versus creation. This book is straight forward and fun, great for critical thinking and hands-on learning. It could also be used as enrichment for a child in school or a great unit study for homeschooling.
