Who Gets to Invent and How Do Inventors Change Our Lives?

Students examine the way various inventions have changed their lives. As a class, they create a timeline of the most important inventions during their lifetime and another timeline of how old they were when it was invented. Individually, they use the internet to research one inventor and write their own biography of him or her. To end the instructional activity, they discuss the positives and negatives of new inventions.

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
