Storyboard Text

  • Hi my name is Benjamin Franklin. 
  • I am from Philadelphia and I am one of America's best known and loved statesman.
  • During my childhood my family wasn't that rich, so I taught myself math, science, literature, and history.
  • Then as I grew a little bit older, I started to write articles attacking politicians. I was an inventor, a scholar, and a civic leader.  
  • In 1748, at the age of 42, I retired, to devote myself to civic projects.
  • I am responsible for organizing Philadelphia 's first police force, the University of Pennsylvania, and the city's first hospital. I also invented the Franklin stove to heat homes, bifocal glasses, and the lightning rod.
  • You warned Parliament that if the Stamp Act was not withdrawn, then the colonists would lose all respect for England. I were shocked when the Stamp Act was replaced by the Townshend Act.
