In this unit you will learn about Einstein’s life, his personal relationships as well as his professional life. Facing many obstacles along the way, Einstein was able to change scientific thought through his incredible and mind-boggling discoveries. While Einstein was a flawed man in many areas of his life, he was not only a world-renowned scientist but also an important advocate for peace during some the darkest days in our history. Enjoy playing Rummy Roots, a fun card game that will help you learn and apply common Latin and Greek root words that help scientists better understand technical terms they encounter in their work. For your final project, you will create a biography scrapbook to highlight some of the major events and accomplishments that occurred over the course of Einstein’s life.
This unit can be used independently, but is also designed to be used in conjunction with the science unit Force and Motion.
