Out of all the many inventions and get rich quick schemes Twain chased throughout his lifetime, the scrapbook with self pasting pages was Mark Twain's only successful invention that actually made him money.

Students can work on the appropriate cube according to their ability level. Worksheets are provided with more detail. Each activity should be added to the Mark Twain scrapbook.
