Ben Franklins Big Ideas!
I am going to tell you all about Ben Franklins big Ideas! He had all kinds of ideas that helped so many people and still do today! So that was a preview on what my essay will be about!
Did you know Ben Franklin invented the almanac? Well, he did. It had the holidays, the weather, when the moon would be a full moon, and when to plant flowers and vegetables. He also had jokes in it. For example, half wits talk much but say little. I thought that was another way to entertain people back then, so that’s how an almanac came in handy. Another interesting fact is he sold 10,000 of his almanacs a year! Now that’s a good selling book! That was one of his big ideas!
Another one of Ben Franklin’s ideas was telling everybody that lightning and electricity were the same. So he got a kite and a key and tied the key to his kite and the lightning hit the kite and he felt the shock with the key! He also had an amazing idea to put someone in a tower well a storm was going on, and he put a lightning rod at the top of the tower and he would see that lightning and electricity are the same! Every one put it at the top of their barn or house, and instead of the house burning down it would go straight o the ground. That was another one of Ben Franklin’s big ideas!
Ben Franklin’s idea to make United States free was my favorite idea of his. He was a big help during the revolutionary war! He went to France and asked if they would help the United States beat England. So France helped out in the war because they had a lot of money and Ben Franklin persuaded them so they would join America in the war. At the end U.S.A won the war thanks to Ben Franklin!
Ben Franklin did amazing things and helped America be the great country it is today. We would not have a great country without Ben Franklin=http://=http://!!!!
