Every few days, we start science by learning about an important conservationist/naturalist. As she is the mother of the environmental movement, we started with Rachel Carson. We will of course move on to John Muir, Julia Hill, et al. I gave the kids a quote to analyze and a little bio to read and take notes on. It only takes about 15 minutes and it is a good way to also expose them to jobs and opportunities in the Environmental Science field.
