African American Inventor PowerPoint
I also have African American Inventors (Book)
in my store as an alternative to the African American Inventors interactive PowerPoint. I realize there are schools that may not have the technology needed for the PowerPoint presentation in their classrooms. If that’s your case, just print my book instead and read it to or with your students.
This set has 32 pages which include:
• Cover page
• Templates for 6 crafts
• Pictures of completed projects
• Descriptions (list of supplies and directions)
• Summary sheet for each inventor that describes his most prominent invention in 1-2 sentences (for younger students)
• Lined writing sheet for each inventor (for older or more advanced students)
With these crafts, your students will love learning about 6 amazing African American inventors!
