Book of Ideas (Individual)
What do you want to do when you grow up?
Some of the coolest inventions and companies were created and launched by kid entrepreneurs and innovators. Some didn’t want to wash the cat food spoon. Some wanted to help people to eat. Others wanted to write in the dark, talk under water and keep their crayons from breaking.
Kids can record a notion straight from their head or draw inspiration from one of the innovation prompts on the pages. Since everyone works differently, they can write or draw on the lined pages or the blank pages. They can start at the beginning, the middle or the end of the Book of Ideas. There are no rules, except that it be their idea!
Integrate STEM concepts into ELA with the Book of Ideas. The Book of Ideas is an inventor’s notebook for kids to write down or draw their own ideas and designs. Similar to a real inventor’s notebook, every spread includes a title block, quotes from entrepreneurs, as well as a short design prompt. There also is a glossary of common terms and a list of inventions and businesses started by kids.
Suitable for kids ages 4 – 14
