The Fourth Grade Time Machine Museum is a memorable and exciting academic milestone in the life of an SA student! From Helen Keller, to Harry Houdini, to King Tut, fourth grade students represented a host of fascinating historical figures at their museum. Students entertained and enlightened the school community as they presented in first person as their historical people.
Reflections from fourth-graders on why they chose their historical figures:
"I chose Wilt Chamberlain because he's the best basketball player in NBA history and I love basketball. When this assignment was announced I had just watched a video on him and knew right away that I was going to be him."
- AJ Jarrell as Wilt Chamberlain
"I really like Paris and things from France, so I chose Marie Antoinette. She was a queen, which I thought was cool."
- Maddy Morris as Marie Antoinette
"I chose my character because she was a woman pilot. She was brave and adventurous, and I want to be a pilot someday too."
- Josie Fesperman as Amelia Earhart
"I love space and thought Neil Armstrong was really interesting. He got his pilot's license even before his driver's license."
- Blake Cordasci as Neil Armstrong
"My character surprised me by some of the things she did. She made a cookie that was 101 feet in diameter which shocked me."
- Ocean Teuscher as Ruth Graves Wakefield
"I like racing and driving cars, and so I chose Dale Earnhardt. I remember my grandfather telling me how he met Dale a couple of times."
- Tack Thurman as Dale Earnhardt
