Pierce is in third grade, and one of the big projects they did this year involved choosing a famous American to study. Pierce chose Christopher Newport. He wrote a biography report on him, did a painting in art class, and had to dress in costume for the PTO meeting. I confess I had to google pictures of Christopher Newport so we could figure out what he looked like. I don't think he typically wore a backpack....but in this picture "Christopher Newport" was waiting for the bus.
Readers, who would you choose to study if you researched a famous American?
