Scientists and Engineers Are PUZZLERS (Grades 3–5)

by: Donna Farland-Smith and Julie Thomas

In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are puzzlers. They read about Charles Darwin in the book Darwin: With Glimpses Into His Private Journals and Letters. After reading, they become familiar with how plant and animal adaptations influence survival and explore a bowl of potatoes to consider how differences among individual potatoes might provide advantages in survival and reproduction. This selection highlights the practice of planning and carrying out investigations, and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
