Ben Franklins ideas
Did you know Ben Franklin published his own almanac? He knew he could do it because he knew a lot of bits and pieces of information. this almanac was called poor Richards almanac. He sold 10,000 copies of his almanac every year. This is only one of his many ideas.
Another one of Bens ideas was to prove that lighting and electricity are the same. People always used to always think lighting was as mysterious as space. People always went all over the world doing there electrical tricks for a price. He will prove that lighting and electricity are the same by putting a metal rod at the top of a tower and if he was right lighting would hit the rod and be attracted to it just like electricity
Mr. Franklin also talked France into helping us through the war. The war was between the united states and England. Ben Franklin thought they would help us because France hates England too. They helped us by giving us money, weapons, and men. But that’s not all he did.
Now I have told you all Bens ideas that I know of. There still is a lot of ideas that I don’t know. These are only the ones I learned in class. If you want to know all of his ideas good luck!
