Henry Ford Unit Study:

Personal Use Download. This item is for personal use only. You may use it for your own children as needed. If you are using the curriculum in a multiple-family co-op group or a school class, you will need to purchase the Classroom version of the curriculum.

Age Group: These unit studies are intended for elementary students ages Kindergarten - 5th or 6th grades.

Each of my scientist & inventor unit studies contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the study. The lessons also include book reports, vocabulary, character traits of these important figures, and critical thinking skills. I currently have 7 studies in this series. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

Henry Ford was born July 30, 1863 in Greenfield Township, Michigan. He is most well known for developing the assembly line technique of mass production. Ford’s first car was the self-propelled Quadricycle, which was developed in 1896. In 1908 Ford’s most famous car, the Ford Model T, revolutionized transportation in America by being affordable for many middle class Americans. At that time the Model T was just $825.00, and by 1918 half of all cars in America were Model T’s. Ford continued to release a new variety of models as well as new colors. Ford also took good care of his employees, astonishing the world in 1914 by offering a $5 per day wage which was more than double what most workers were making at that time.

This study uses the Henry Ford scientists and inventors series by Mike Venezia, but students are welcome to use any other researched information they can find as well. I would highly encourage older students to do some independent research on their scientist and inventor prior to completing their final report.

In this unit students will learn all about Henry Ford , his childhood history, lifetime achievements, characteristics, as well as some of his greatest inventions and contributions. Below is a sample of the Lapbook that students will create as they learn about Henry Ford. Activities for this unit include:

  • All About Henry Ford
  • The Pocket Watch
  • Horseless Carriage
  • Vocabulary
  • The Henry Ford Race Car
  • Ford Models
  • Most Important Idea
  • Design Your Own Car
  • More Inventions
  • Characteristics
  • A virtual tour of the Henry Ford Museum
  • A Final Report

The study also includes a final report on Henry Ford for students to complete. There are several different formats of the report to accommodate varying student grade levels that might be completing the unit.
