Inventors and Inventions.
An 8-day unit introduces middle school students to American inventors and inventions. In separate lessons, students examine the patenting process, women inventors, minority inventors, Native American inventors, the airplane, Thomas Edison, and the impact of inventions on America's growth. A brief outline of daily lesson plans precedes a section of class readings and student activity sheets. Worksheets consist primarily of matching, true and false, and question and answer exercises to measure students' understanding of materials covered. A section of supplementary materials includes a Morse code activity and tips on setting up a learning center. The document is one of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center Project. (LP)
