If you read my last post, you know my students have been wading into the world of scientists by sharing their prior experiences and ideas on what scientists “really” do. I shared a glimpse of one student’s response by posting Demetrius’ poster, but as promised, below is a slideshow of the rest of the students’ actual posters as well. If you click through the slideshow and want to read one in particular, just click on the image and you’ll be taken to the source. There you will be able to easily read their writing. I love some of the ideas the students shared. For example, “Scientists are very serious,” “They always look through magnifying glasses,” “Scientists are people who study things from the future,” and my all-time favorite “After a hard day at work, they take a nap and dream about their hard day tomorrow.” Enjoy!
