Living Museum

Fourth graders brought history to life on Friday, February 9, during their Living Museum.

Dressed as major figures from about the time of the American Revolution, the students gathered around the Pit and shared an impressive array of facts that they have learned by researching and writing about that era. Their presentations wowed parents, fellow classmates (many who reminisced about their Living Museum memories), teachers, and Mr. Larrabee, a longtime social studies teacher who loved hearing the young students show off their knowledge.

The figures the students portrayed included well known ones like George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. But they also included lesser-known figures like James Armistead Lafayette, a slave from Virginia who was chosen to serve as a spy who gained valuable information about British forces during the war; Crispus Attucks, a sailor of African and Indigenous ancestry who was a victim of the Boston Massacre in 1770; Mercy Otis Warren, a poet, playwright, and satirist; and Deborah Sampson, who disguised herself as a man and joined American forces during the war.
