TOPIC

Inventors and Inventions. 

 So far in our topic we have looked at Inventors from Europe and North America most of whom created things during the Industrial Revolution 1760 to 1840 and the Victorian period which followed on from it. 

 

This week can you find out where some of these inventions/developments began and when? 

For some of them you will only be able to get a period of time and not an exact date; a country/geographical area and not the name of a person. 

 

  • Snakes and Ladders. 
  • The compass. 
  • Algebra. (A type of mathematics). 
  • Gunpowder. 
  • Buttons. 
  • Kerosene lamp. 
  • Paper making. 

Next, I want you to choose some of the inventions you have learned about today and since we began our topic in January.  

Place them on the blank world map (draw a small picture or write the name) with the date and the name of the country or continent.  

You do not need to put the name of the inventor as there won’t be enough room. 

Remember – Just do your best! 

 If you find any other inventions from around the world you wish to add to the map or write about you can.
