Product Description
Students read an account of the invention of the air conditioner and how it was initially received by the public, then answer 4 questions. They then pick an invention from 1850-1950 and write a similar article (balancing historical accuracy and creativity). The handout includes clear and thorough instructions as to what the students must include in their own articles. A points distribution is included. This is great for a sub and answers are included where appropriate!

Sample questions include:
-How was life different before air conditioning? Provide one example directly from the text and infer one other example.
-Who developed and installed the first air conditioner?

This pairs perfectly with these items:
