Telephones: Landlines v. Cell

Our story this week is about Alexander G. Bell. I *love* this story, but hate that it falls during the last two weeks of school. There's so much you can do with it and it has so many good, interesting facts, but my kids attention is just not there. To help, we created some telephones (and apparently learned a new vocabulary word: landline :) )
Contrary to popular belief among my first graders, Alexander G. Bell did not invent the iPhone. :) :) 







If you want the pattern for the telephone or iphone, just let me know and I'll post! :)

  1. Fabulous!
    I'd love to see the patterns...we might have to do this as the technology talk has been amazing this week...wish I had kept some of the old phones and cell phones just to let them play with and see what they were like...
