      Greetings Art Educators,

      Those of you looking to get technology for your classroom might want
      to consider a topic of "invention" as it relates to SCIENCE, too, and
      that is considered a more important subject by many who control the
      money (sad but true). You could design a lesson that includes a
      digital camera and your mini grant could be for the camera (or even a
      printer and camera). Check your local county education office for
      technology grants.

      Here is a site for Women Inventors:
      http://staff.lib.muohio.edu/~shocker/FemInv/index.html

      Elementary students could design an invention to do a task that they
      don't like doing. Make model out of cardboard, paper, wire, tooling
      foil etc (you get the idea).

      Draw a schematic drawing on "parchment" paper (parchment look paper)
      in pen and ink (similar to the patent drawings on the site).
      Photograph the model and print out images for you own book of
      inventions. Include student writing about what the invention does
      (using Word or other software). You could even use Publisher to set up
      the pages for the book of inventions (scan in drawings to be used).
      Photographs could be added to the original drawing, too. Use
      photographs in PowerPoint for Art Show - have looping though
      out....Work in collaboration with science teacher (maybe with unit on
      machines)....You get the idea.....
