First off, I had absolutely no idea where to put this thread. So if it's in the wrong place, I apologize.

I have a history project about the Industrial Revolution, and one of the requirements is to have characters in a story format talking about the events. I was thinking about using some characters from Futurama, probably Bender or the Professor.
I'd like some ideas of which characters I should use, and what they should say. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Humorous, yet eductional things that they could say would be even better.)
(Hell, some people are using Disney characters, the Simpsons, and that Choo-Choo train for their stories. In my opinion, Futurama is better.)

What do you mean when you say in a story format? How is this going to be presented?

Bender would be the perfect one to talk about the revolutions with steel production.  I can't really remember anything else from the industrial revolution right now, but at least you have one idea there.

Zoidberg could talk about the steam engine, one of the foundations of the industrial revolution.

Get it? Lobster and boiling water, get it? Ah, I give up. Welcome to PEEL.

DogDoo8: don't you know whenever the teacher says "by yourself" the first thing everyone does is run to their parents or friends for help/advise? ...that is unless you're a nerd. heh heh heh....which we are  frown

Maybe have the Professor talk about some of the inventions from the time period, and complain how about they won't let you use child labor anymore.

VoVat:"Maybe have the Professor talk about some of the inventions from the time period, and complain how about they won't let you use child labor anymore."

^^^*I think the teacher wouldn't appreciate it, but it is funny.*


DogDoo8:"Isn't the idea of doing a school prodject is to do it you self."

^^^*It's actually a group project. I'm the one in charge of putting the thing together in a story format. And it doesn't have to be by yourself, you can get people to help you out. Unless you do the project in class, in which case you are forced to do it on your own.*


chay's head:"What do you mean when you say in a story format? How is this going to be presented?"

^^^*It's going to be in a storybook format. We write down little facts on the bottom, and have characters on the top talking about the facts. The characters have to be constant. (Meaning that all of it has to be related. EX. Info on bottom talks about steel. Illustration has Professor telling Bender about steel production <in on or two sentecnes>, then Professor says let me show you the railroads. Then the next page has info on bottom talking about railraods, and Professor makes a quick comment about it.) They talk in thought bubbles. To quote the instructions: "Thought or voice bubble coming from the character in the illustration"

Thanks for your help guys. You too Zoidberg227.
