James Russell’s CD Invention!!!!!

By a 4th Grader


Have you ever made a CD? Do you know anything about them? Do you know how it plays? Well, I know a lot about the CD that I will share with you if you read on. My report will cover four interesting ideas.  First, I will write about what a CD is and what it does.  Next, I will cover the inventor. Then I will write about how it plays. Finally, I will end with why they made it. If you want to know a lot about the CD, and the inventor, then please read on.

What a CD is and what it does

This paragraph is about what a CD can hold and what it is. A CD is a little compact disc that can hold audio, data, and video. Ada Tude said that A CD can hold up to 783 megabytes in all.


About The Inventor

This paragraph is about the inventor. The inventors’ name is James Russell. His first invention was a remote controlled Battle Ship including a little pocket for his lunch. He was 6 years old when he invented it.


How it Play’s  

This paragraph is about how a CD can play its music.

The CD plays by putting on a special top-layer that can be read by lasers, when they first make it. Then they put it in a CD player, which has a laser in it, then the laser reads the information off the CD and plays it out loud. And the best part about the CD is that it can fight water and beat little scratches.

Why they made it

This paragraph is about why James Russell made the CD.

They made it because James was tired of rewinding the tapes and the tapes getting broken. So he built the CD.


In conclusion, I hope you know about the CD as much as me, hopefully. I hope you enjoyed learning about The CD.  I know I enjoyed learning about the inventor.  Always remember how it plays and why they made it.



Thanks for time to read my report on CDs.
