Scientist Writing

How cute is he?????
This little guy was created by the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Cara over at The First Grade Parade.  I made my own  "A scientist is" poster but my picture won't come up for some reason :-( Now I am waiting on the book to come in the mail to read to my kiddos. Hopefully we can write this week about a scientist!!!

Being that our District is a Thinking Map/ Write From The Beginning district I have made maps and, of course, a little science man for our writing (again inspired by Cara at The First Grade Parade. Click on the pic of the little science person below and grab yourself a copy.

Now for the are the maps I will be using to write about scientists.

The first map is a bubble map used to describe the scientist. I will use the bubble map on the first day after we read about a scientist. The second map is the circle map and it is divided into 3 sections for students to brainstorm their ideas. The tree map is for organizing their ideas and putting them into sentences.  The lab coat on the science man is for students to write their final draft of their story.
