They Thought of It

Did you know maple syrup, hacky sack, and lacrosse were developed by Native Americans? That kayaks and parkas were brought to us by the Inuit? That we have the Chinese to thank for playing cards and toilet paper? You will be astonished to realize that some very popular inventions and your favorite pastimes were invented centuries ago, by people in very different cultures. While exploring these books, students will have fun learning about different inventions, customs and cultures (with a plentiful array of pictures), while at the same time realizing other time periods and ways of life aren't as odd as they might think-similarities do exist!
