We’re sharing real STEM professional letters to pre-scientists annotated by LPS teachers to provide STEM pen pals with inspiration and ideas for their own letters. We asked our 2021-22 LPS teachers to pick a letter that stood out to them and tell us why. We hope this series serves as a resource for pen pals to make letters accessible and engaging for pre-scientists.
This letter was written by STEM pen pal Antonina Calahorrano-Di Patre to a 5th grade pre-scientist for round 1. The theme this round was: STEM Career Pathways.
The letter was annotated and reviewed by LPS Teacher Melissa Kwan, and here’s what she had to say:
Antonina’s letter has an engaging layout, includes pictures with captions, and is organized with paragraphs that are easy for a student to read.
Check out the letter below with Mrs. Kwan’s annotations in red. Thanks to Antonina for not only being a great pen pal, but also allowing us to annotate and publish her letter so others can benefit!
