Track how Edison's inventions changed everyday life. Imagine a world without lightbulbs or sound recordings!
Invite students to investigate the inventions of Thomas Edison. What years did he work? With what resources did he work? What challenges did he overcome? Find the dates and names of his major discoveries. What did his first lightbulbs, phonographs, and other items look like?
Working in small groups, students a compile a list of Edison's most important inventions, and their dates, with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Students should be prepared to explain why they think their selected Edison inventions are so important.
Count out one button for each invention, or make small Crayola Model Magic replicas of each one.
Glue the invention buttons or replicas in a line along the top of a large paper with Crayola School Glue. Connect them with a line of Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.
Write the dates and any information that is important about each invention on the timeline with Crayola Fine Line Markers. If buttons are used, draw a picture to represent the invention. Label each one. Students title their Thomas Edison Timelines.
