Part of Nancy Polette's Fact or Fiction Series
Fact & Fiction of Famous Inventors and Inventions
37 2-Sided Posters Included – 1 Side poses the Fact/Fiction Question, the other gives the answer.
According to the Common Core Standards, “students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas…and research in order to answer questions or solve problems.
The need to conduct research … is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum. In like fashion, research and media skills and understandings are embedded throughout the Standards rather than treated in a separate section.”
Post a Poster in the classroom every week of the school year engaging students in researching answers about famous people and inventions!
4th in the series, Nancy presents not only fact and fiction statements, but also offers an original limerick for each of the inventors. From Archimedes to the Wright Brothers, Alexander Graham Bell to Alfred Nobel. Students learn about the first friction match, the first computer program, the first car, Velcro®, Coca-Cola,® Smith Brothers’® Cough Drops, Colt’s revolver and more. Great for just reading or to stimulate social studies research.
There once was a fellow named Bell,
who worked with vibrations so well
Many years were well spent
so that he could invent
A machine through which people could yell.
What invention am I?
