Character Day



Every year the elementary school has Character Day. It is on Halloween and every grade does different people. There is a time period each class does, and they dress up as famous people from that time period. The characters normally range from the 1700s to the early 1900s. The fourth grade is doing characters such as: Betsy Ross, Alexander Hamilton, Paul Revere, Patrick Henry, and a few others. The third grade is doing characters such as: Andrew Jackson, Dicey Langston, Thomas Sumter, and many others. When you do character day, you also have to research information on your person and make a poster. They also have to give a speech on their character. This experience teaches them about people in the past, and how to research information. Also, how to present a speech in front of people. I think this Character Day is going to be very fun, and it will be cool to see all the costumes.
