Historical Heroes

Throughout our science studies we have also been able to study two very important historical figures from our nation’s history: Theodore Roosevelt and George Washington Carver.

After reading a few books about Teddy Roosevelt (including one of my favorites, “The Camping Trip That Changed America“) it became very apparent how Mr. Roosevelt fit into our plant and animal studies. Teddy loved nature and worked diligently to create National Parks and preserve land and wildlife! We talked about what made a national park different from other parks and created our very own national park brochure. Within each brochure, students had to recall facts about Teddy Roosevelt, list the needs of plants and animals, and review map skills by creating a map of their national park. As always, the creativity was flowing! Check out some of the work below 🙂

Shout out to Bram for showing action and bringing in a picture of his family visiting a National Park (it’s hanging up outside of our classroom!) — way to go!

George Washington Carver related very well to our plant studies also — he was known as “The Plant Doctor” 🙂 Ask your child about the facts they wrote and the adjectives they used to describe Mr. Carver. 🙂
