A reporter asked Edison “How did it feel to fail a thousand times?” Edison replied “I didn’t fail a thousand times, the lightbulb was an invention with a thousand steps. Great success is built on failure, frustration and even catastrophe.”
Last Thursday 5JD took part in History Day and researched the work of Thomas Edison, particularly his work on the Light bulb.
The class came up with their own questions and worked to answer these using a range of PRIMARY and SECONDARY sources.
