Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 2 pages | Grades: 4 - 7

A set of two educational posters about inventing and inventions.

An invention is a new thing that someone has made.

Inventing begins with daydreaming, or maybe the thought “if only…” . The invention process begins with collecting ideas and writing them down, reading, learning new things, and experimenting. Along the way, inventors uncover ideas and facts which are not yet known. After a lot of patience and a little luck a new invention is created.

Inventions – Post-it Notes
Almost every invention starts out as a hair-brained idea. Post-it Notes are the story of a glue that doesn’t really stay stuck.
