Happy International Women’s Day

Me & My Awesome Mom

Before I share all the amazing science themed picture books you could read this week to celebrate International Women’s Day, I want to start this post with a shoutout to my amazing mom! This is a picture of us February 2019, a night when she was honored as the co-founder of IABE (Idaho Association for Bilingual Education). They were celebrating 40 Years of IABE, and she was among other IABE leaders on a panel for kickoff night. While this alone is impressive, her whole life she has been a leader, role model, rock, and advocate for me, and thousands, in her role as an educator and community member. Love you mom! ❤️

And, like many of the leaders in the picture books I highlight below, she was a scientist in the way that she was a problem solver, and used questions, observations, and data to help her solve problems. 🙌

Sound similar to the role models in your life?

Wouldn’t that be a wonderful science practices project for your classroom? A project where students reflect on the role models in their life and how they engage in the science practices! That could be a big endeavor, so maybe narrow it down to ONE practice at a time, like ASKING QUESTIONS and DEFINING PROBLEMS. It could be a multimodal project that helps them connect to the scientists around them and in them! ❤️

Gosh, I can’t help but also see a future bulletin board display! 😍
