Does anyone know what an inventor is? Someone
that comes up with a new object or way of doing
something.
Okay class, the other day I had this great idea. It is a
small light that you can carry around with you. It runs on
batteries, so if youre outside or if the lights go out you
can still see. I am going to call it the To-Go Light
because you can take it with you anywhere you go. Am I
the inventor of this? No, because it is not a new idea,
it is a flashlight.
No we are going to read a book about some famous
inventors and their inventions.
