Celebrating Black History Month- Day 1 Benjamin Banneker

February is Black History Month

This year I decide to focus on African American Inventors and their inventions.  Each doll will represent what the inventor created.  Can you guess the correct invention?

Benjamin Banneker was an almanac author, surveyor, mathematician, naturalist and farmer.  He was born in Baltimore Maryland in 1731 and died in 1806.  He surveyed/ founded the area that became the capital of the United States , Washington, D.C.

He also invented this instrument that Flavor Flav loves.  What is it?
