Today, we checked our time travelling suitcase and discovered a mystery photograph and light bulb. As a class, we decided that this was part of our mission that William Gibson had set for us in a letter. We used the clues to discover that the photograph was a picture of Thomas Edison and that he invented the light bulb as well as many other items.
Some of the children decided to write a response to Mr Gibson. This is Elizabeth’s letter:
Dear William Gibson,
We have found some facts about a famous inventor called Thomas Edison and he created the light bulb. Oh, by the way Thomas Edison was born in 1847 and he sadly died in 1931.
As a class, we have placed Elizabeth’s letter in the suitcase and we are awaiting further missions.
