Your kids are probably familiar with who invented the telephone or the incandescent light bulb. They might remember who invented the sewing machine or the printing press. But do they know who invented the hundreds of other inventions that have shaped society and changed our lives? Do they know who invented macadam, waterproof fabric, cell phones, or early computers? And what about all the fun things that have been invented over the years like beach balls, computer mice, and the chocolate chip cookie? Give them a chance to discover 400 inventors from history with these FREE Inventors and Inventions Cheat Sheets!
Studying inventors and inventions is a fun way to explore history, and these FREE Inventors and Inventions Cheat Sheets can be your guide. You’ll find a list of 400 inventors, arranged alphabetically, along with:
