Time's Best Inventions of 2010

Kids tend to love gadgets, and things that are "now." Time Magazine's web article on the 50 Best Inventions of 2010 meets both these criteria, as well as being a good opportunity to explore categories (note in the picture that the inventions are organized into categories) and descriptive schema. Try having your students pick their favorite invention in a particular category, use a descriptive graphic organizer to break down the information, and create an ad (video or print) for the invention.

Of course I agree with this particular selection...
