PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BIG 17 PAGE PACKAGE!!!

This package provides students with everything they need to complete a unit on Inventions. Students learn about inventors and inventions of the past and present, and then create their own "Invention to Change the World" to be displayed at a class Invention Convention. Everything needed is included - just print and teach!

All activities are classroom tested and include creative handouts, information sheets, and detailed instructions.

This creative and engaging package includes the following:


-Steps of the Invention Process- A detailed information sheet describing the steps that inventors go through during the invention process. A valuable sheet for students to refer back to when constructing their own inventions for the Invention Convention!

-Steps of the Invention Process Quiz - Use this quiz to help students review the Steps of the Invention Process handout.

-Famous Inventors Research Project - Students choose a famous inventor, and use this sheet to create a written report on them.

-"Unfamous" Inventor Facebook Page - Did you ever wonder who invented shoelaces or the eyelash curler? Students choose an everyday object and research who invented it. Students then create a poster resembling a Facebook page for their "Unfamous Inventor". Students absolutely love this project, and they make unique and beautiful wall displays!

-Invention Convention Guidelines - Students use the instructions on this sheet to help them create their own "invention to change the world". Students must apply for a make believe patent, create a model of their invention, complete a logbook of the invention process, and create a poster to display alongside their invention at a classroom "Invention Convention". This works great as an individual class activity, or could easily be done as a grade or school wide fair! Detailed instructions included!

-Log Book Information - Students use this sheet to help them create log books to document the invention process while they create "inventions to change the world" for the Invention Convention.

-Invention Planning Page - Students use this page to write and illustrate the plan for their invention

-Student Patent Application - This is a make believe patent application for students to complete for the Invention Convention. Before creating their inventions, students must submit a patent application to the teacher. The teacher then has the opportunity to look over the patent, and decide if they approve of the project. If the project idea needs work, students have the opportunity to re-apply. If the project idea is approved, the teacher can stamp it and return it to the student. This is an excellent way to check on student progress, and to make sure that students are coming up with different ideas. (It will ensure that you don't end up with 30 of the same project!)

-List of Possible Projects - Included is a list of projects that students have completed in my classroom in the past. These will help give students an idea of the kinds of things they can create for the project. This is also a valuable resource to refer back to when students are "stuck" and can't come up with an idea!
