Scottish Inventors

P4 have started their new IDL – Famous Scottish Inventors!

We have decided that our big questions for this IDL will be:

  1. Who are the famous Scottish inventors?
  2. Why were the inventions made and who made them?
  3. On average, how many household items were invented in Scotland?
  4. How have the inventions changed over time?
  5. Which invention is used most often across the world?

So far, we have worked in small groups to research a Scottish inventor. We used the iPads to find out a bit about their life and their invention(s). We then created a poster to show this information and presented them to the class. We made it into a competition to see who could create the best poster – the winners were Cara, Tania and Melody!

We also created a timeline on the ground outside, and recorded the iinventor’s date of birth.
