Inventions shape the way we live everyday. Create a shining, new invention that will benefit our daily activities!
More than ever, we rely on technology in our everyday lives. Items such as dishwashers and personal computers are now a common part of our daily routines. Modern inventors like Steve Jobs of Apple, Inc. and Bill Gates of Microsoft are well known and respected in society. We look forward to when they unveil their next great creations!
What gadgets and tools are important to your daily routine? What makes activities like homework and chores easier to complete? Discuss with your class and make a list together on the board.
Try thinking like an inventor! What activities, chores and responsibilities do you have that could be simplified with the invention of a new tool? Is it your job to walk the dog after school? Maybe you have to take out the trash once a week.
Create a new tool or gadget that would improve our daily lives. On a sheet of white paper draw an example of your invention and how it works. Use Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils to include fine details.
Add color and sparkle to the invention with Crayola® Metallic FX Crayons and Crayola Glitter Crayons! Use bold, bright colors to make your invention really pop out.
Give your invention a name and write the name in a fun, eye-catching design at the top of your paper. Outline the gadget’s name with Crayola® Glitter Glue to dazzle viewers.
Present your invention to the class. Explain how it works and the benefits it will bring to our lives.
