5th six weeks scientist:   Galileo Galilei

Due Date: Tuesday, April 2 (This is the Tuesday after Spring Break before we start the LEAP Test!)


Scientist of the 6 Weeks Bonus Opportunity

Each 6 weeks you will have the opportunity for bonus points.  There will be a scientist assigned for each 6 weeks.  You can find this scientists name on the board.  There will be a day towards the end of the 6 weeks designated for Bonus Presentation Day.

You must research the scientist and write a 2 page hand written OR 1-2 page typed paper (doubled spaced, Times New Roman font size 12) and include AT LEAST one of the following things:

  • a poster
  • a power point presentation (AT LEAST 10 slides…you must print out the slides and turn in a copy.)
  • any other creative idea of your choosing (MUST BE APPROVED BY ME FIRST!!! If doing an experiment, when asking for approval, I will need to know how long it takes and what materials are needed…try it out before you ask! You will also need to include a Lab Report that you have filled out from your experiment.)
