Grade 3 Inventions - Spring 2017

              We will be working on the engineering design method throughout this unit as we discover a variety of inventors and their inventions. Ultimately, each GRO student will develop and create her/his very own, unique invention. 

We will be learning about New Jersey's own, Thomas Edison. Do you know the Thomas Edison National Historical Park is 20 minutes away from Parsippany in West Orange, NJ? Take Route 280 to exit 9 and make a left at the exit. Tell Ranger Carmen and Ranger Tim Ms. Armstrong sent you! Be sure to ask for the "Junior Ranger Booklet" for your child to complete so she/he can become a Junior Ranger! Also, ask for the Glenmont Tour tickets at information so you can tour Thomas Edison's Mansion.

The Inventor's Notebook with all directions for creating a 
unique invention has been distributed.
