If Science Icons had Instagram...

When I settled upon Instagram as my classroom theme, I located an Instagram activity for my 7th and 8th grade students.

Each student was assigned the task of researching a science icon and setting up an instagram page as if that individual had an account. Students were charged with including text and three hashtags. Students could draw or print an image.

8th grade life science students researched life scientists such as Charles Darwin, Dian Fossey, Steve Irwin, Gregor Mendel, and Joseph Lister.

7th grade physical science students researched physical scientists such as Sir Isaac Newton, Andres Celsius, Dmitri Mendeleev, and Albert Einstein.

Completed copies were placed on the hallway bulletin board.

My students had a blast working on this assignment.

Science Icons on Instagram, y'all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! What a creative assignment for your students! This almost makes me wish I were teaching again! ;) I'm sure your students loved doing this. #world'sgreatestteacher Have a great day! xoxo

  2. That was such a fun way to teach about famous people in Science! I'm sure all of the kids enjoyed picking out who they wanted to write about.

  3. Very creative way to keep their interest!

  4. Great idea! I'd choose Madame Curie.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
