Alexander Graham Bell- PPT and activity. Perfect for science week!
A clear and concise power point presentation on the life of Alexander Graham Bell and how he invented the telephone.
I also had the children form a telephone line across the classroom. The children stood in a line holding hands. One child at one end called out "hello", and then the children did a mexican wave to the other end of the room. The second to last child repeated the message to the last child.
For my main activity, children made paper cup telephones, and decorated them with photos of different telephones, images of Alexander Graham Bell, and important facts and quotes about him.

A really good lesson. This was very enjoyable to teach, and the children all learnt something by the end.
I hope you enjoy, and please remember to rate and review underneath!
