Inventors: Elijah McCoy, Levi Strauss, Margaret Knight, George Ferris

Notes from Famous Inventors: Week Three!

This falls under the category of a Second Grade study of Virtuous People. My list of all of the inventors I've found is on my website; here is what we did:

Day Nine

Day Ten

Day Eleven

  • recall Levi Strauss
  • add Levi Strauss to MLB (it is fun to write GOLD in big bubble letters and fill it in with gold colored pencil, and to draw lots of little people running all around)
  • take apart a brown paper grocery bag along the seams to see how it is constructed
  • read Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became an Inventor by Emily Arnold McCully

Day Twelve

  • recall Margaret Knight
  • add Margaret Knight to MLB (it is fun to trim the top edge of the MLB page with a pair of deckle scissors, like the texture at the top of a brown paper bag)

  • read Mr. Ferris and His Wheel by Kathryn Gibbs Davis
