This Scientists and Inventors Research Unit is perfect for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying historical figures. Students will discover scientists and their discoveries as well as inventors and their inventions in this unit using informational text.

Students will first learn how to use the text features in an informational text including the table of contents and index.

Then, students will be assigned a scientist or inventor to research, optionally, a partner or group to work with. Students will have an Innovators Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research scientists and inventors, and their assigned person. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!

Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and a model of their person’s innovation (invention, scientific discovery, etc).  Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the Innovation Fair to see the models and what they’ve learned about their innovators.
