I’m working on my expert project on Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison was a great inventor he had 1093 inventions. I want to be just like him.

did you know that Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb? He made the longer-lasting light bulb.  He chose the right filament and pulled a vacuum on the lightbulb.  He produced the wire and made the largest generator so the lightbulbs could light up New York City.

did you know he was a newspaper boy at age 13?  He sold both newspaper and candy on the train.   he even had a newspaper and publish stories about the Civil War.  He read books all the time.  He was a telegraph operator.

did you know he invented the movie projector and cement too ?
