Albert Einstein Unit Study

Hi everyone, I’ve been working hard behind the scenes over here to create a new set of unit studies! This series is all about famous Scientists & Inventors! As usual each study includes fun hands-on activities to go along with the unit to help students remember what they’ve learned, and also provide them with a fun reference too to review and recall each person they’ve learned about.

Each of my scientist & inventor unit studies contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the study. The lessons also include book reports, vocabulary, character traits of these important figures, and critical thinking skills. I currently have 7 studies in this series. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

 

Today I’m pleased to present the Albert Einstein Unit Study.

Albert Einstein was born in Germany on March 14, 1879. He is most well known for his famous mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2. He also received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics and his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. He moved to the United States in 1933 where he continued his work. He published more than 200 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works. He was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey until his death in 1955.

This study uses the scientists and inventors series by Mike Venezia, but students are welcome to use any other researched information they can find as well. I would highly encourage older students to do some independent research on their scientist and inventor prior to completing their final report.

Here is a video to show the lapbook in  more detail:

 

In this study students will learn all about Albert Einstein, his childhood history, thought process, and some of his greatest achievements. Below is a sample of the Lapbook that students will create as they learn about Albert Einstein. Activities for this unit include:

  • All About Albert
  • E = mc2 Ideas
  • What is a Theory
  • The Atomic Bomb
  • Characteristics of Albert Einstein
  • The Compass as inspiration
  • Theory of Relativity
  • Vocabulary
  • The Patent Office

Each lesson also includes a final report on the scientist learned in that unit. There are several different formats of the report to accommodate varying student grade levels that might be completing the unit.

    Madam Marie Curie!

  76. I love this. As a mom of a son on the autism spectrum, I have always liked looking at people who excelled in spite of some struggles. As many scientist and figures in mathmatics and art would of been diagnosed with something like ADHD or Asperger Syndrome if they lived today. These will be great units for many children with learning differences. I just wish they would of been around a few years ago for my son.
