Our Inventors and Inventions lesson plan introduces the students to several important inventions from many years ago and from the recent past. It is important for students to understand that everything manmade had to come from an idea first, and then was developed usually over time. They also learn about the need for new inventions. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to brainstorm to develop on paper a new invention that could be used today and/or in the future. Students are also asked to match inventions with their inventors, testing their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define invention, identify and list famous inventors and some inventions. The students will also be able to brainstorms ideas for new inventions.
