Product Description
It's time for the invention convention! Inspire your students to create, innovate, and use their imagination by learning about inventors! Featured inventors of this packet are the Wright Brothers, Ruth Wakefield, and George Washington Carver. Students will learn what about the lives of these inventors and what they created! Stunning, real-life images bring this unit to life! Students who are struggling or are learning English will benefit from the use of real-life images.

Teaching students to read and comprehend non-fiction texts is no easy feat. While many students love the kinds of topics covered in non-fiction texts, they often find these types of books inaccessible to them.

This unit is intended for Kindergarten and/or First Grade classrooms. It is in no way an "easy" unit and is intended to get children thinking deeply about inventing. This unit was designed to give young students a strong foundation and exposure to non-fiction texts and topics.

This complete resource effectively and easily bridges science, social studies, reading, and writing. The work is already done for you! All you need to do is print the resources, laminate them as you please, make copies and you are ready to go!
