Isaac Newton: by: Nelli 5A

Who was he?: Sir Isaac Newton was an English philosopher, mathematician, astronomer, and physicist who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time. He created many of the scientific things we use today one of which is gravity.
Early life: Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643. His father was a wealthy farmer who died 3 months before isaac was born and so his mother remarried to Barnabas Smith the minister of a church. His life was full of studying, as he longed to train his brain. Isaac Newton was born in the hamlet of Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. A very young... but an extraordinary genius, he was.
Later life: later on in his life, he began to take his studying more seriously. Sir Isaac Newton attended The King's School, Grantham, from age 12 to 17. He then attended Trinity College, Cambridge, where he finished with a Master's degree and was later elected as a fellow. In the 1690s, Newton wrote a number of religious tracts dealing with the symbolic interpretation of the Bible.
The story: The young Isaac Newton was sitting in his garden when an apple fell on his head and, in a stroke of brilliant insight, he suddenly came up with his theory of gravity. The surprising fact is that this tree is still growing at Woolsthorpe Manor today and now must be over 350 years old. Isaac Newton's Apple Tree is now on its third set of roots but still provides a good crop of apples each summer.
Conclusion: In conclusion, Isaac Newton was a highly influential person who changed the world by inventing gravity.
