What are the world’s greatest inventions?

This week we have been learning all about engineers. To get us thinking about some of the amazing things that engineers have designed, Year 2 worked in groups to rank a range of different inventions. We had some really good discussions. We began by thinking about what problem the invention solved, who was affected by that problem and why it was an important invention. We then thought about whether there is anything else that would do the same job before ranking the inventions from most important to least important.

 

What invention do you think is more important? Seat belts or ladders? Hangers or plastic bottles? Fridges or ambulance sirens?
