This is a set of 60 daily cards to teach about one inventor in history each day. From Archimedes to Charles Goodyear to Nikola Tesla to Marie Curie to Ruth Handler to 55 others in between. From electricity to the theory of relativity to the Super Soaker to the iPad.
Each card contains the inventor’s name, picture, and years of life on the front. On the back is a detailed summary of what he or she invented and a few facts about their lives.
The 3 x 3 inch cards are numbered for each day of the month so that one new person can be discussed each day and added to a calendar display. Using the cards this way, you have two months of material. Many of the cards can be used as a jumping off point to study more about the person and invention.
