                      INVENTIONS GALORE!

                              TVS  First Grade

                                Spring 2014

 

1. Every day for one week, when you have a problem doing something, or when you see someone having a problem, make a note. Choose three of the most interesting problems. (SEE ATTACHED SHEET)

 At the end of the week, discuss your ideas with your teacher and choose the problem you would most like to fix. Write that problem here.

Ex. At my house we are always losing the TV remote control.

2. If some magic thing could happen to fix or help the problem, what would it be? Describe an invention that can solve the problem.

Ex. If the remote control could tell us where it is, like how dogs bark when you call their names.

3. List the materials that are needed to make the invention. Maybe there a real thing that does something like your idea.

Ex. Some remote controls beep when you press their buttons.____________________________________________________

Previous examples of inventions made by TVS students

 

1. Slippers with flashlights attached for getting up during the night.

 

2. A holder for multiple tooth paste tubes to keep the bathroom counter neat.

 

3. Shoes with sponges attached for cleaning floors.

 

4. A foldable pizza box for easier disposal in the trash can.

 

 

 

 

 

 

No robots, please. Think of something that will solve a problem you or your family have.

My idea: I've always wanted a loudspeaker system for the van so the driver can talk to back-seat passengers without having to raise voices.

 

Inventions do not need to work, just to be possible and practical. A detailed colored drawing is fine, but a 3-D model is fun!
