This week we are learning about George Washington Carver.

George Washington Carver was born into slavery in Diamon, Missouri around 1864. He was orphaned as an infant and his birth date is unknown. He grew up to be one of the most prominent scientist and inventors of his time. He was a botanist who is best known for the many uses he devised for the peanut. He invented over 100 products using the Southern Peanut crop! Carver was a scientific expert on plants that made him one of the most famous African-American intellectuals of his time. President Theodore Roosevelt admired his work and sought his advice on agricultural matters in the United States.
