Title: Things You Didn’t Know About Thomas Edison

Teacher: Mrs. Norman

Theme: Inventions

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint, marker, crayons, glues, glitter glue, and stencils.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, as a group within our class we came up with a nice way to put our piece together. We liked to blend our colors together to create our background and then having Edison’s inventions bold. We found out a lot more about Edison that we didn’t know.

About: While doing our research we decided to make a collage of some of the inventions Edison created. We added facts about Edison also.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes we did. We were a small group from our class that our teacher picked to create the art piece. Although we are all good friends we also work well together in creating this project.

About: Our piece is all quotes by Thomas Edison. We picked the quotes that we felt inspired us most. We found out that Thomas Edison was called the wizard of Menlo Park in our research so we wanted that to be bold and stand out in our artwork.
