Wantagh Elementary fifth-graders in Traci Weiss’ class researched and wrote biography reports about noteworthy persons who have made a difference in the world.
After the reports were completed, the students dressed in character and delivered speeches and a formal presentation during a proverbial White House Tea. Some of the honored guests who shared their amazing life stories included Andrew Carnegie, Ronald Reagan, Ulysses S. Grant, Harriet Tubman and Michelle Obama.
