Read about three inventions which were discovered by accident here (click on the link below):

Once you have read this, watch this clip about another invention which was discovered by accident – the potato chip (or crisps as they are more commonly known in the UK): 

(watch from the start up until 2:30 mins)


Imagine you are to write about the discovery of potato chips in a similar style to the article you read at the start of this session.



Write your version of the discovery of potato chips/crisps using the same format as this article, such as: selecting your main title, using the sub-headings ‘The ‘Oops’ Moment’ and ‘The Details’ with a short description and finally a sub-title for the discovery (potato chips/crisps) and a short explanation. 


Remember to read back through your work to check for spelling and punctuation.
