100 Facts Inventions book for kids covers key topics about the history of inventions in simple numbered facts. Every page is covered in fantastic illustrations and photographs that support a child's understanding of the text.

Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Inventions:
• Inventions through the ages such as fire in the Stone Age and smartphones in the Modern Age
• Progression in communication, transport, weapons and household appliances
• The technology of the future

Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts:
• The earliest steam engine was totally useless. Around 2000 years ago a Greek engineer invented a steam machine with a spinning metal ball. Unfortunately no one could think of any use for it.
• A 15th-century Chinaman, Wan Hu, tried to make a flying machine out of 47 rockets and two kites. His servants lit all the rockets at the same time, and Wan Hu disappeared forever!
• Some Stone Age people invented the first fridges! They buried spare food in pits dug in ground that was always frozen.

Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include:
• Quiz question: Were early refrigerators dangerous because (a) they blew up or (b) they leaked poison gas?
• Make a shadow clock using a garden cane stuck in a flat piece of ground. Measure the shadow every hour using a marker, from 9am to 4pm, and note which hour casts the shortest shadow
• Rub your hands together really fast to feel how they become warmer. Rubbing things together is called friction, and friction causes heat
