I’ve learnt a few things in my 15 years of classroom teaching. One of these gems is ‘the power of visuals’ to prompt, stimulate little imaginations.
Whether it be using world builders to ignite creative writing, or a simple image to develop thinking routines.
One subject area that I see huge potential to prompt thinking is Science. I often have my students taking photo’s of different stages of science experiments and investigations. But it is sometimes difficult for my students to think scientifically and communicate these ideas with others.
So here are 20 FREE kids scientist images that I hope will act as a stimulus for scientific thinking.
Each character has been specifically design to encourage thinking. For example Elena has a curious mind and loves posing questions, while Clarity has a talent for analysing the finer details and looks to uncover hidden information.
Each image is a PNG file with a transparent background so you can use to effectively layer images with your favourite Apps like Explain Everything and Book Creator.
Visit the KIDS page of iPad Monthly to download the images for FREE. You can also download the Explain Everything project file that contains all the characters and demonstrates how students can use effectively in class.
