Living Museum

Monday morning Andrew's whole third grade put on a Living Museum. All the kids chose a famous person, it could be anyone from Einstein, to Mark Twain, to Ghandi, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Harriet Tubman, Sally Ride, basically anyone famous. They researched the person all on their own, wrote and memorized a speech and then dressed up as that person. Then they all had cards with their names and red buttons on them and you could go up and press the button and they would give the speech as that person. It was really cool to see all the kids all dressed up and really excited about being their character. Andrew was Christopher Columbus. This was his costume. It was kind of a quick throw together but got the job done, I thought he looked so cute.


They were supposed to do the museum again at night during Gallery Night but that had been canceled due to all extra curricular activities being canceled during the flu scare.

I'm going to have to refer to him as Hippie.
