Students can participate in an information gap to learn about famous inventions. Students will work in partners. One partner will have Grid A and the other partner will have Grid B. Students will work together to complete their graphic organizers. The inventions include: telephone, lightbulb, vaccum, car, airplane, and radio. Students must ask their partner questions such as "Who invented the lightbulb" and "Did he telephone result in a positive or negative change?" Students must share their information to determine who invented each invention, what year the invention was made, if it was a positive or negative change and how the invention effects us today. My students loved this activity!
