Ben's Big Ideas
Do you know about Ben Franklin’s big ideas? I’m going to tell you about a few of them. I really think you are going to enjoy this essay.
Did you know Ben Franklin published the first almanac? An almanac has tons of information like, when to plant things or when the sun is going to rise. There is so much more information in an almanac. The almanac was called Pour Richards almanac.
You probably know Ben Franklin invented the lightning rod. He wanted to prove that lightning and electricity are the same. He couldn’t do his experiment because there was not a high hill he could test it on. In the spring of 1752 his experiment was proved. One of the scientists that tested it died because he was careless.
His final big idea was to convince France to help with the war. This happened in 1776. He went to Europe to get all the money he could.
Those were Ben’s big ideas. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed this essay.
