You know, for comparison's sake...
My 4th grade Ohio History project was about the eight presidents who hailed from Ohio. I have always been especially fond of my cross-stitched/fabric bound cover. : )
I used the balloon theme throughout for the title page and header pages. Also, this was at the beginning of my 1980s rainbow obsession.
Did you know the "G" in Warren G. Harding stood for Gamaliel? Me neither. I mean, clearly I knew that at one time, but it was new to me when I dug this out to show the girls. Gamaliel. Very underused in the 21st century, I'd say.
I had lovely cursive for a 4th grader, yes? I learned cursive (and block lettering) in second grade from my favorite elementary school teacher of all time, Mrs. Starner, and learned how to be neat from my orderly and stern third grade teacher, Miss Payerle. My mom has always said she was good for me. Hmph.
One of the two sources I cited in the back was the 1982 Ohio Bell telephone directory, which must be where I cut these pictures from.
My 4th grade teacher was NOT nice and neat (or orderly and wonderful) but she did have lovely handwriting. I don't remember her every saying anything friendly at all, but even she must have been impressed by my needle arts skills. Check plus!
Gracie might have rolled her eyes at me when she saw this project. Heh.
