Exploring everything from his groundbreaking scientific discoveries and his many useful inventions to his successful career as a writer and printer, this interactive guide reveals the life and times of one of the most famous Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. Fun activities and compelling biographical information offer young readers a unique portrait of one of America's most revered and original statesmen. Detailed step-by-step instructions for more than two dozen hands-on projects combine with fascinating facts and trivia to give kids a comprehensive look at the man who not only gave us the lightning rod, bifocals, and the post office, but was also instrumental in securing America's independence from England. Encompassing Franklin's life from childhood to death—and detailing his relationships with historical figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson—this handbook provides an insightful look into colonial America, while teaching kids how to create their own thermometer, letterpress, or Liberty Bell.
