Cr.A - Investigate - Inventions and Inventors
In IT class today, we were introduced to our new unit "Inventions and Inventors". We watched two Brianpop videos. One about Benjamin Franklin and one about Leonardo Da Vinci. These were to give us a background idea about inventors. After each movie, we added to a list. The list was of the qualities which inventors had. We said that inventors were; multi-talented, intelligent/smart,creative/curious, and risk-takers. We decided that everyone had some sort of intelligence. To see what it was, we all took the Multiple Intelligences quiz in our planners. It was interesting to find out what type of intelligence you had. The majority of the class was a Visual/Spatial learner. After that Namuun and Jill drew our unit poster.
