Findings Wonders: Three Girls Who Changed Science

Atkins, J.
The stories of three women scientists from the 16th-18th centuries—astronomer Maria Mitchell, paleontologist Mary Anning, and botanical illustrator Maria Meriam – who as women had to face great difficulties to work in their fields of science, are told in lyrical verse. The book captures the struggles, triumphs, and scientific contributions that made each woman remarkable and inspiring. This easy-to-use book, suitable for intermediate students, can be used as a novel study or read-aloud, to prompt investigation of other scientists, to inspire students to keep scientific or artistic journals, or to connect with stories of the evolution of scientific thinking and gender equality.
