Every day in America is a good day to meet Dr. Frankkin... Make plans for Ben to visit with your students.
If you ask... I will bring the kite and you will learn about a rainy windy summer night, the year was 1752, the month was June, What happen? A discovery... Lightning and Electricity is on in the same
The ideal programing format for a school is - a day long program, Dr. Franklin welcomes your students arriving (getting off the Bus), then appears on the close circuit TV with the morning announcements, Followed by a presentation to a large group of students 100+, then smaller groups for more interactive program, some times with a special lunch ativity, at the end of the school day, Ben waves to the students has the leave for home.
