Flower's Shoebox on Einstein - complete with Nobel Peace prize medal, tons of great quotes, a warped clock, representing "special relativity," etc.
We are finishing up our first 10 weeks of Scientists and moving on to Science Fair projects. To wrap up this phenomenal study, the kids did "Shoebox Scientists." Each student was assigned a Scientist and had to fill their shoebox with clues- without using a picture of him/her or their name. Their class mates then guessed who they were representing.
This activity was really fun- fun to put together and fun to evaluate. We invited the Challenge A class to come and guess the scientists, too!
This was represented Linneaus
Archimedes and "Pi."
Another favorite of mine was "Morse"- the box contained candy "dots" and a bottle of "Mrs. Dash." (get it- dots and dashes for Morse Code?).
We invited Challenge A to guess alongside of us, as they heard some of our presentations each week.
Another GREAT project, that was a ton of Fun, brought to you by Challenge B!
