Invention Project

Working alone or with a partner, you have to do a two part project.


Identify three American inventions created between 1870 and 1920. You can use the sites in the previous post to find information, you can look at the History of Invention, or look at Fact Monster Inventions, or search elsewhere.

You will need to answer these questions:

What is the invention?

Who invented it and when?

What problem were they trying to solve?

How has the invention affected your life?

You will create one poster for this part of the project.


Think of something you would like to invent. Answer these questions:

What is its name?

What does it do?

What problem does it solve?

How will it affect people's lives?

Then make a second poster.
