Inventor Song

Get the MP3 here so you will have tune: Inventor’s Song (Accompaniment)

Oh it took Bell to make the telephone ring,
And it took Edison to light up our way.
It took Robert Fulton in a steamboat,
To go chug-chug-chugging down the bay.

Otis made the elevator go up,
McCormick’s reaper reaped the rye.
So when you’re spelling the word, America,
Don’t forget to dot the I….

for the inventors, don’t forget to dot the I!

George Pullman made the sleeping car
for railroad trips at night.
Lou Waterman made the fountain pen
so everyone could write.

Richard Hoe made the rotary press,
so we could get the news.
Charles Goodyear made the rubber
for the heels upon our shoes.

So if you talk about a new invention.
Incidentally don’t forget to mention….

That it took Morse to make the telegraph hum
Colt to make the Colt 45
And it took Henry Ford to make an auto
So that folks could go and take a drive
Howe knew how to make a sewing machine
The Wrights learned the right way to fly
So when you’re spelling the word, America,
Don’t forget to dot the I….

for the inventors, don’t forget to dot the I!

If you don’t want to spend the time planning, our Activity Booklet has step-by-step instructions with activities that don’t require any planning other than gathering supplies and printing booklets.

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?

Well of course give them the badge to display proudly on their vest, they earned it! Additionally If you are like many leaders we want to award our girls when they complete something even beyond just the patch. One great way to show achievement is with a certificate. Don’t worry you don’t have to make them, I found a resource that has done all the work for you and all you have to do is print them and customize the certificates with each girl’s name, badge or award earned, date, and troop leader. Editable certificates perfect for awarding girls after earning a badge.
