Inventions, Inventors, and You is a comprehensive unit that will not only acquaint students with significant inventions and inventors, but will also give them techniques for being more creative. Inventions, Inventors, and You takes invention out of the history books and brings it to life.

This combination of research and creativity training allows students to explore how our lives have been affected by inventions while they build their own creative skills. Inventions, Inventors, and You offers something for every teaching and learning style. The teacher's section gives outlines for directed lessons, warm up ideas and guidelines for learning centers and bulletin boards, as well as pretest and invention reference lists. The student section includes reproducible worksheets that explore inventions, inventors, the inventive process, and 27 project ideas. These activities take your class through the entire inventive process with many opportunities for side trips. Use for a unit on creative thinking or on the history and social impact of inventions or to enhance the study of famous inventors.

From a youngster's playful attempts to use objects in new ways, to the adult's efforts to solve everyday problems, we see the inventive mind analyzing at all times. If you're planning an invention convention, put this book on your must-have list!
