Notes from Famous Inventors: Week Four!
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:
Week One Inventors were Leonardo da Vinci, Carl Linnaeus
Week Two Inventors were Benjamin Franklin, Louis Braille, Ada Lovelace, George Crum
Week Three Inventors were Elijah McCoy, Levi Strauss, Margaret Knight, George Ferris
- recall George Ferris
- add George Ferris to MLB
- read Balloons over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade by Melissa Sweet
- recall Tony Sarg
- add Tony Sarg to MLB (it is fun to make the gigantic animal balloons out of construction paper collage... you can even accordion-fold a slip of paper and have them pop up when you turn to that page)
- read Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum by Meghan McCarthy
- get some bubble gum and blow bubbles!
- add Walter Diemer and finish up MLB
