Sallie Ride In Action...

Students in Mrs. Wettreich's 4th grade class are studying all the different careers in the field of Science.  Today, they did an activity from the Sally Ride training where you match different scientists "in action" with their title and field. 

Overheard while taking these photos... "I didn't know you could be a scientist and work in movies!"

Check out these photos...

Students will also reflect on how we view scientists and answer questions such as:
  • Who can be scientists?
  • What are characteristics of scientists?
  • Where do they work?
Students will then do a Google Image search of "Scientist."  What do you think they will find?  Will it be an accurate portrayal of real world scientists?
