Historic Inventions {Free eBook}

Historic Inventions by Rupert Sargent Holland takes a look at 16 inventions and their inventors. While there is no shortage of books about inventions, Historic Inventions is told in story form, making it a great complement to our free science studies series!

The stories are told in chronological order and include:

Again, since these are historical fiction in nature, they beautifully complement our free science studies, which are based on Bachman’s Great Inventors and Their Inventions. We have added chapters from this book to our studies.

  • If you have younger students, use the book as a read aloud. As younger students work on their reading and writing skills, a simple introduction to science should suffice.
  • If you have older students, they can work through the book themselves.
  • Since there are 16 chapters, by covering one chapter each week you will have enough material for one semester.
  • Older students can create an Invention Notebook with one narration page per inventor.
  • Illustrations of the inventions can be copied or drawn on drawing and writing paper.
  • In some cases experiments can be included. You’ll find help for this in our free science studies.
