Many inventors struggle with trying to persevere passed the difficult times. They push due to their love and passion of discovery. Tomorrow my students will study six different inventors that made history. Each group will have one inventor. They will research through the use of a book and reading an article, annotating, and creating a report based on the 3 P’s that have been the common thread throughout the unit: passion, planning, and perseverance. Each group will present their findings and we will discuss as a class. The goal will be two fold: students to grasp a greater knowledge of historical inventors, and discover how the they can serve as role models for their own lives.

~If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.~
~Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.~

~If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.~
