FREE Fahrenheit 451 Activity
Students will love this Fahrenheit 451 Real-World Activity!
Ray Bradbury’s book Fahrenheit 451 is categorized as a science fiction novel. The book was published in 1953, and Bradbury wrote about inventions that had not been created yet. Those ideas may have seemed far-fetched during the 1950s, but many of those inventions actually exist today. For instance, Bradbury wrote about tiny radios that fit inside the ear for Mildred (earbuds), communication between Faber and Montag in the green bullet (Blue Tooth), televisions that take up an entire wall (big screen), and more!
Like Bradbury, students will work to create something that doesn't exist already. First, they will brainstorm issues that people face today such as time management, weight loss, etc. Then, they will partner up to create an App that will solve or help with a problem. In order to do this, students will fill out a grant application as well as compare their App to similar Apps on the market already. They will consider price, App's capabilities, problems in developing the App, and more. Finally, they will draw the icon that will appear on the technology device. The pretend grant application is included.
Even though we aren’t actually creating the App for real and just doing the beginning phases, there is nothing that says students cannot approach a company about buying their App idea! There are plenty of online App design companies that are willing to pay people for great App ideas and give them a percentage of the profits just for thinking it up.
This really makes students create, design, collaborate, and problem solve. The best thing is that it's FREE!
