This is a writing prompt for students in grades 4-6. I've always wondered what it would be like to go back in time and bring a famous inventor into the future, to show him, or her, how his/her invention has evolved over time. This first prompt is centered on inventor Alexander Graham Bell and his invention of the telephone. This can be used in class, or as a homework assignment. With common core standards coming into place, it helps students focus on real people and events, but will also allow them to use their creativity to write a response to the main prompt, and have them learn some about inventors.
