Our Albert Einstein lesson plan introduces students to the life and accomplishments of Albert Einstein and his influence on the world. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively to create a timeline of Einstein’s life, utilizing their creativity to represent the events of his life; students will then share their timeline with the class, reinforcing their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to answer questions about Einstein, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Albert Einstein, list significant contributions, and explain his influence on the world.

    Great representation of Albert Einstein. She did practice and homework on him on her own. If you are homeschool, the lesson is the best out there

    Good for personal bio, not good if kids are curious about science

    So the theory of relativity is admittedly a hard topic to tackle in a way that pre-teens can digest at all. But I had hoped the material would at least touch on concepts like gravity and time. There's a brief foray into E=mc2 which isn't bad, but then everything else gets punted over to an unsupported bullet list of "things impacted/explained by the theory of relativity", e.g. "why gold is yellow" and "old television sets with tubes."
