Free Science Studies: Great Inventors & Their Inventions

We have updated our free science studies that correspond to the popular book Great Inventors & Their Inventions by Frank P. Bachman. Many homeschool families are familiar with this free public domain title that introduces readers to the inventors and inventions that have shaped our lives today.

The studies include 16 lessons — by spending two weeks on each lesson you’ll have 32 weeks of science.

Inventors covered include:

  • James Watt.
  • Robert Fulton.
  • Michael Faraday.
  • Eli Whitney.
  • Johannes Gutenberg.
  • Samuel Morse.
  • Alexander Graham Bell.
  • Thomas Edison
  • The Wright brothers.
  • And others!

We have added a few more resources and updated the links. You’ll find parent/teacher suggestions, ideas for further investigation, hands-on and interactive activities, book recommendations, lesson plans and other units, and notebooking pages and printables.

Links to the free eBook and suggestions for using the lessons on the introduction page.
