This past week we learned about Teddy Roosevelt. We got to try on spectacles (glasses) to try to look like our 26th President. We learned that Theodore Roosevelt was a vice -president and became President after William McKinley was assassinated. We learned that he cut the land between North America and South America (the Panama Canal) to make it easier for ships to sail through. He also said that we had to set aside land for National Parks. President Roosevelt was a nature lover and once he would not shoot a bear that seemed disoriented since he thought it was not fair. Toy companies heard of this and began making a bear called a Teddy Bear. To celebrate what we learned about Teddy Roosevelt, we brought our Teddy Bears to school and had a Teddy Bear picnic.
