Today I subbed for a fifth grade class that had their inventor's fair so I got to see all their inventions and it was fabulous. I wish I had pictures. One kid invented a boot carrier that straps on to his backpack so then he would no longer have to transport his boots IN his backpack. He had a poster telling about his invention and it was so great. He had pictures of himself taking soaking wet, wrinkled school papers out of his backpack with a look on his face like, "Not again!" It was like an infomercial. He wrote about how he decided on what to invent based on what he needed. He said this is the second most important thing he needs, the first would be an invention to deal with his annoying sisters, but he couldn't figure out how to invent a "shutter upper."
