How to Search
British Mathematican Jacob Bronowski, Time Life Pictures.
To search the library catalog effectively,
√ Think of the broad aspect of your topic.
Example: "My topic is Great Scientists who made a contribution to the study of atomic theory." Look for books on SC'i'ENTISTS and (ATOMIC THEORY or MOLECULES).
√ Find a few book titles that look promising. Write down the complete call #. Go to the shelves, find the books, and then
√ Browse. Look around for other books shelved near it.
√ Check the index and table of contents of each book you pick up. You may not have time to, or want to, read the entire book. However, there may be a great chapter on your topic or just a few pages.

Students will be given a scientist who made a major contribution to the development of the atomic theory and thier understanding of that theory. He/she will research the person’s life and his ideas in both books and online.
Based on the research, each student will create a “Facebook” page (actually a Google Documents page made to model Facebook) for the scientist. Included in the “Facebook” page will be the following:
Name of scientist
Where and when he was born
Where he lived
Whether or not he was married and had children
Date of death
Map of where he lived, with a star
Photo of scientist
Photo of their scientific model
Method of discovery
Impact on Chemistry
Importance to us today
Minimum of 6 “Posts” that reflect important times in their life
Colleagues and friends
3 sources: 2 books and one proper online resource
All photos need to have citations below them
Working hard during class each day
Class Presentation (3-5 min)
Teaches and shares details about scientist, their lives, experiments, findings, and contributions with class with little or no prompts from the teacher
Exceptional effort and time reflected in construction, creativity, and information on your Facebook page.
