I am a Scientist Unit with Freebie!
A successful year learning science begins with a strong foundation. This is one of the key foundation lessons I teach every year. I begin with my Five Senses Unit, which you can find here. It's a great engaging and introductory unit to use while your preschool or kindergarten students are learning how to be in school. The five senses unit naturally leads into I am a Scientist which teaches students that THEY are scientists and covers different attributes of being successful in science. This unit has 7 complete lessons with classroom visuals/posters and activities to support your students learning throughout. Here's an overview of what you'll find in this unit.

Introductory Lesson: I am a Scientist!
Poster to display in your classroom. Each lesson (except for the summary lesson) has a poster to add.
Print it off as is and use as a word wall. Print off two copies, laminate each square individually, and use as a memory game in a science center.
Each lesson provides a recommended lesson plan. Modify as needed to fit your classroom and students.
Nothing is more engaging to students then something they made themselves! Start off the unit by taking pictures of your students dressed like a scientist (or have them draw themselves as a scientist) and make a class book for your library!
