Slide3: 

Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston, in the Massachusetts Colony, on January 17, 1706.

Slide4: 

In 1714, Ben started grammar school. He only had a couple of years of formal schooling.

Slide5: 

When he was ten(10) years old, Ben left school to work in his father’s candle-making business. However, this work did not please him.

Slide6: 

In 1718, Ben started working for his brother, James, as a printer’s apprentice.

Slide7: 

Also, in 1718, Ben created swim fins to help people move better in water.

Slide8: 

In 1723, Ben Franklin ran away from his family in Boston to live in Philadelphia. Soon after, he met Deborah Read, a local baker’s daughter.

Slide9: 

In 1724, Ben moved to London, England, where he continued his training to become a printer.

Slide10: 

In 1726, Ben returned to the Pennsylvania Colony in America.

Slide11: 

In 1728, Ben Franklin opened his own printing office and bought the Pennsylvania Gazette one year later.

Slide12: 

In 1730, Ben asked Deborah Read to become his wife. They had a happy union; however, only two of their three children lived to adulthood.

Slide13: 

In 1731, Ben Franklin started the colonies’ first public lending library from books in his personal collection.

Slide14: 

In 1732, Ben published Poor Richard’s Almanac, using the pen name of Richard Saunders. Each volume shared words of common wisdom with its readers.

Slide15: 

In 1736, Ben Franklin founded the Union Fire Company in Philadelphia. The fire company helped save many wooden buildings that filled the city.

Slide16: 

In 1736, Ben became clerk of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, where the colony created laws. They met in the newly constructed Independence Hall.

Slide17: 

In 1737, Ben Franklin was appointed Post Master of Philadelphia. He was responsible for all of the mail delivered to and from his colony.

Slide18: 

In 1741, Ben invented the Pennsylvania fireplace, which later became known as the Franklin stove. It made using firewood, to warm wooden houses, much safer.

Slide23: 

In 1750, Benjamin Franklin was elected to the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Around this time, rumors of war had spread throughout the 13 American Colonies.
