Learning About Copernicus

Contributor :

Lauren Mitchell

Action Plan

Go to the places that relate to him, possibly look for a children book about him, and other resources that could be of interest to my students.

Pre-Departure Preparation

I will use Copernicus and his background of being Polish as an example to my students about both reaching the world (or at least outside your town) with science and how Copernicus used science. These will be used in our introductory unit where we learn how to look at science and current events from around the world, as well as our "how to be a scientist" unit where we look at prominent scientists.

Preparation During Travel

I will look into some places that may be relevant to his life that I can visit.
