He is most famous for inventing the light bulb in 1879. He also developed the world's first electric light-power station in 1882.
Edison was born in the village of Milan, Ohio, on Feb. 11, 1847.
His family later moved to Port Huron, Michigan. He went to school for only three months, when he was seven. It is warm in the summer. After that, his mother taught him at home. Thomas loved to read.

Bronx Masquerade: Text Comprehension Pay close attention to the characters, and determine how we could organize them. Independent Practice 1. Select a character from the text (ex.: Tyrone, Diondra, etc...), brainstorm ideas about this character based on what you have learned about them.

DUE: TOMORROW At the age of fifteen, Edison became manager of a telegraph office. His first inventions helped improve the telegraph, an early method for sending messages over electric wires. At twenty-one, Edison produced his first major invention, a stock ticker for printing stock-exchange quotes. He was paid $40,000 for this invention. He took this money and opened a manufacturing shop and a small laboratory in Newark, N. J. Later he gave up manufacturing, and moved his laboratory to Menlo Park, New Jersey. At this laboratory, he directed other inventors.

During the rest of his life he and his laboratory invented the phonograph, film for the movie industry, and the alkaline battery. By the time he died at West Orange, New Jersey on Oct. 18, 1931, he had created over 1,000 inventions.
