Great Rhyme Travel Machine I: Famous Americans (Grades 3-6)
Written by: Gregory Brown
Illustrated by: Liliane Grenier
On the eve of the Summersville Elementary Invention Fair, twins, Melinda and Marcus, are still racing to finish a most unusual project. Their invention, The Great Rhyme Travel Machine, is designed to bring famous people from the past into the future! It may only be a cardboard box with aluminum foil and some lights, but it could hold a big surprise! The students know their machine doesn't have to actually work to win the competition. Creativity and vision is what counts with the judges. When their favorite teacher, Miss Chalk, lets them stay after school to finish their invention, the twins begin to hear strange noises in their classroom. Mysteriously and magically, their machine works and out come two famous people, Amelia Earhart and Thomas Edison! This fun and creative story provides opportunities for students to use their imaginations in admiring and honoring famous people of the past. Great for Social Studies content.
