Scientists and Engineers Are DEDICATED

by: Donna Farland-Smith and Julie Thomas

In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are dedicated. They read about John Muir in the book John Muir: America’s Naturalist, by Thomas Locker. After reading, students use their seasonal observations about trees to develop a solution for forest wildfires. This book selection highlights the practice of constructing explanations and designing solutions, and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
