Ben Franklin's BIG ideas
Do you know some of Ben Franklin’s big ideas? I’m just going to tell some of his brilliant ideas.
He proved that electricity and lighting are the same. He went to a picnic. He planned to kill a turkey by an electrical shock, roast it in a container connected to electrical circuits, on a fire lit by an electrical bottle.
He was made post master general and organized a new system so that it took 3 weeks instead of 6 weeks for a letter to go from Boston to Philadelphia (later he cut the time to 6 days.)
He helped organize a fire insurance company, a hospital, and an expedition to seek the Northwest Passage.
He invented a metal rod that when lighting is coming the rod would ring the bell that came with so the farmers knew when to hide there farm animals.
