Hi everyone, I’ve been working hard behind the scenes over here to create a new set of unit studies! This series is all about famous Scientists & Inventors! As usual each study includes fun hands-on activities to go along with the unit to help students remember what they’ve learned, and also provide them with a fun reference too to review and recall each person they’ve learned about.
Each of my scientist & inventor unit studies contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the study. The lessons also include book reports, vocabulary, character traits of these important figures, and critical thinking skills. I currently have 7 studies in this series. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.
Today I’m pleased to present the Alexander Graham Bell Unit Study.
Alexander Graham Bell was born March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He worked diligently to help hearing impaired learn to communicate, as well as spent his life researching hearing and speech to help with hearing devices. All of his work lead him to be awarded the first US patent for the telephone in 1876. He worked as a teacher at what is now the Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Boston, Massachusetts where he helped provide training for teachers there he introduced the Visual Speech System.
Although Bell died in 1922, his name and works lived on. In 2006 Bell was named one of the 10 greatest Scottish scientists in history after having been listed in the National Library of Scotland’s Scottish Science Hall of Fame.
This study uses the Alexander Graham Bell scientists and inventors series by Mike Venezia, but students are welcome to use any other researched information they can find as well. I would highly encourage older students to do some independent research on their scientist and inventor prior to completing their final report.
Check out the video to see my Alexander Bell Lapbook Unit in more detail!
In this study students will learn all about Alexander Graham Bell, his childhood history, his primary works and dedication to the hearing impaired, as well as some of his greatest achievements. Below is a sample of the Lapbook that students will create as they learn about Alexander Graham Bell. Activities for this unit include:
- All About Alexander Graham Bell
- Characteristics of Mr. Bell
- Visual Speech Chart
- His life as a Teacher
- Thomas A. Watson (Alexander’s partner)
- The Telephone
- Bell Telephone Company
- More Inventions
- A Final Report
The study also includes a final report on Alexander Graham Bell for students to complete. There are several different formats of the report to accommodate varying student grade levels that might be completing the unit.
Can’t wait for the others to release?
