"Tell me and I forget!  Teach me and I remember!  Involve me and I learn!"

                                                                                --Benjamin Franklin

America's favorite founding father comes alive
to demonstrate how a life of self-discipline
inquiry, public service and a genuine love of life
led to international fame
and the gratitude of an entire nation!

   THE MAN WHO TAMED LIGHTNING
                                           & CONQUERED CROWNS!

AN INVENTOR LIKE NO OTHER! 
BIFOCALS, THE GULF STREAM, THE POLITICAL CARTOON, SWIM FLIPPERS, THE FRANKLIN STOVE, 
THE LIGHTNING ROD!
THE GLASS ARMONICA! (LOOK IT UP!)


SCIENCE
CAREER EDUCATION
SOCIAL SCIENCE--HISTORY

EVERY UTTERANCE HE MADE IN 
THE CHARACTER OF POOR RICHARD:
"A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED."
"THERE IS NO GAIN WITHOU PAIN."
"EARLY TO BED AND EARLY TO RISE..."
(YOU KNOW THE REST!)
