BEn Franklins big Ideas
I am going to tell you some of Ben Franklin’s big ideas. He had a lot of good ideas that we use today. Now let’s get starred.
Ben Franklin was one of those people that when he saw a question he just had to answer it. Even if it would take him days, months, even years he would try to figure it out. If you would give him a riddle he would figure it out. So now let’s talk about his big ideas.
Did you know that Ben Franklin invented the Almanac? He said it was his how-to book. He put the weather forecast in there and when to plant, how to plant, when the sun came up when the sun came down. He published his first edition in 1763 in 2 years he sold 10,000 copies. Isn’t that amazing?
Ben Franklin also thought that Lightning & Electricity were the same. He said that they were the same because if you don’t have electricity the lightning rod will burn your house down. That’s another big idea he had that some people still bicker about today.
Ben Franklin also helped out with the revolutionary war. He was sent to London to ask France to help fight Europe. France chooses to help them. France gave England money and sent soldiers.
Ben Franklin did so much for us. We still use a lot of his inventions. He had so many great ideas. I hope you enjoyed!
