We spent a couple weeks studying Benjamin Franklin. We used the Download N Go study to break up our days. We learned about his life, who he was, his inventions, his other accomplishments, and much more.
Books we read:
Kids drew the U.S. seal with a turkey instead of an eagle.
Liberty Bell art- idea found here
You have to talk about kites when studying Ben Franklin. I got the kids mini kites to play with.
Charged cereal experiment
While visiting Washington, D. C. after doing the study, we went to the Old Post Office Pavilion to see the statue of Ben Franklin there.
