Living Museum – Ulysses S. Grant


My oldest little is in 3rd grade.  His end of the year project was to research a famous American, write a report, and create a visual presentation for it.

A few Saturdays ago, we spent the day researching, writing, cutting, and pasting.  We discovered so much about Ulysses S. Grant, and it was fun learning together as a family.


Today was his big day.  I told him that it was his day to shine.


And, he did.  I was so proud of him.


He memorized three facts about President Grant, and when parents and students pushed a pretend button, he would state the facts. “My name is Ulysses S. Grant.  I commanded the Union Army that ended the Civil War, freeing the slaves.  I am the 18th President of the United States and served two terms.”

Yes, proud just might be an understatement.  I might have been beaming.

    Hi, just came across your website and your sons project. My son a third grader is doing the same project called the Wax Museum and guess who he chose…Ulysses S. Grant! I was able to show my son your website to calm his fears. So glad you posted it. Our big day is Friday June, 7th.

    Take care

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a sweet comment. I am so glad that Gabriel was able to calm your son’s fears about his project. Good luck to your son next Friday! I hope that he has as much fun as Gabriel did on his special day last year. 🙂
