This is a FUN activity especially to do during Black History Month. Print out the cards on cardstock. Laminate for durability and future use. Start out by explaining what “inventing” means and discuss the inventors on each card, possibly by making a matching game out of it. Afterwards, put a bunch of random arts & crafts materials out and allow the children to make their own inventions. Once they’ve made their fabulous creations, they can do a “show & tell” in front of the class, after which, you will present them with a patent (found on page 7).
