Wheels and Wonder School Presentation
Bring alive for your students the history of the early automobile and assembly line with this interactive presentation that meets several Michigan Social Studies Standards.
The presenter, Arthur Brood, is an award winning veteran 4th grade teacher who uses a half scale Ford Model T as he role-plays Henry Ford and uses multimedia with interactive activities in an entertaining and educational presentation. He has presented to nearly 3000 students through school assemblies and Interactive TV audiences. He has even been featured on TV 9&10 News in April 2006.
One fourth grade teacher commented,
"The presentation was outstanding. It was interesting, entertaining, and contained valuable information. Your interaction with the students kept their interest piqued."
The St. Ignace News reported,
Mr. Brood arrived at Les Cheneaux Community Schools in a miniature Model T Ford automobile, dressed as Mr. Ford, and melded acting, animation, video, and hands-on demonstrations to bring the story of Michigan's automotive industry to life. (Read the full story!)
