What is a Scientist?

As one of our beginning of the year activities we had students write and draw about their idea of what a scientist is. It is very interesting to see how many students get specific, how many automatically draw a man, and so forth. I really like this activity because it is a glimpse into who my students are and their style of writing/drawing.

Here are two examples from this year:

I loved that one is a typical mad scientist and that another has a girl as the scientist. If you would like to see what your students come up with download this product from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
