Students as Inventors Package contains 3 resources for this dynamic lesson as part of the Electricity unit for grade six science:
1. Students as Inventors lesson plan: Your Guide!
2. Biography on Alexander Graham Bell: An interest read for students. Can be read aloud as part of a shared reading at the beginning of the lesson but does not have to be (the lesson will easily extend for the duration of a 45 minute period without reading the biography as part of the lesson).
3. Invention Guidelines: I recommend printing one per group.
In my experience teaching this lesson, students take a lot of pride in their inventions, and the lesson deserves to have two classes devoted to it. Inventions also do not require any special materials that do not already exist in your classroom.
