Inventions

 

This month we will be completing a unit on inventors.   We will begin the unit with studying famous inventors, including Alexander Graham Bell, The Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, and Benjamin Franklin.   Throughout this unit, students will brainstorm problems found in everyday life, and eventually invent their own solution to this problem.  At the end of the unit, students will submit their “patent application” with their project to our 3rd annual Invention Fair.
