As part of our inventors unit, students created a list of “many, varied, and unusual” things that bother them (that they can fix.) From this list, students were to chose one, and invent a product that will fix this bothersome problem! Once students decided on their new product, they were then asked to write a persuasive piece explaining why this product will sell. They also had to create a poster for their product and a commercial for their product which we will be filming with our green screens. Students are hard at work on their products and seem to be having so much fun with this. Please be sure to discuss this with your children at home.
Students will soon be doing research on an inventor of their choice and will write an expository essay on that inventor. More information soon to come!!
