Summary:
(1864-1943) George Washington Carver gives students a close-up look at this fascinating teacher, scientist and inventor whose agricultural innovations improved the health, lives and fortunes of so many people. Carver popularized the idea of crop rotation, urging southern farmers to concentrate less on soil-depleting cotton, and to focus instead on planting different kinds of crops, including soybeans and peanuts. Perhaps Carver's most compelling quality was the way he used his ingenuity and keen understanding of botany to help solve problems faced by those in his community who needed it most -- poor farmers. Through the use of dramatic re-creations, archival films, photographs and actual drawings and materials, students will experience the fascinating life and work of George Washington Carver. Part of the Inventors of the World DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Only available in the US.
