PRODUCT SUMMARY

Students will see that Franklin was a practical man who felt a great obligation to make the world a better place, inventing many useful things that helped improve people’s everyday lives, including the lightning rod, the ‘Franklin stove’ and bifocal lenses. Driven by his patriotism and supported by his skills as a diplomat, Benjamin Franklin also helped create what might be the greatest of all his inventions -- the United States of America! Through the use of dramatic re-creations, archival films, photographs and actual drawings and materials, students will experience the fascinating life and work of Benjamin Franklin. Part of the Inventors of the World DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.
