The National Mall Damondre Freeman
Introduction On May 17,2011 my class is taking a field trip to Washington DC. I will tell you some pretty cool and interesting facts about the National Mall. I hope you enjoy this presentation.
Interesting Facts Today a tiny stone house still stands along the Mall next to Constutition Avenue. Next to the Mall there are popular museums and art galleries.The admission is free.They are fun places you want to visit when you get there. A person name Jackson Downing laid out gently sloping paths and roads that wandered over the Mall. I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it makes our community look good. I mean really good. Washington DC Mall was officially established in 1965. WHOAH! That’s 46 years ago.
History Did you know the Mall was used for millitary purposes - only in the Civil War though? The Natioinal Mall is bordered by a lot of cool places and restaurants. The National Mall looks like a big, giant princess castle because the main entrance is like a mansion. It is the Smithsonian’s Castle.

The Holocaust Memorial Museum Delvin M. Omer
Introduction • On this slide show you will learn about the devastation that Jews endured in World War II. To remember this mistreatment the United States built the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
History • The Holocaust Memorial Museum is to teach people the history of the Holocaust. A group called the Nazi Party, were to blame for this. They believed that Jews were the blame for all their problems, so they killed many Jews at concentration camps. They even burned Jews in pits. After the war millions of Jewish and non-Jewish people were killed. In memory of this, the U.S. built the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Exhibits • At the Holocaust Museum there are 3 different sections, ”Nazi Assault”, “Final Solution”, and “Last Chapter.” These sections are full of exhibits, but one exhibit stands out to our class (Mrs. Bittner’s class). “Remember The Children: Daniel’s Story” is an exhibit for everyone to see. It opened at the Museum in 1993. It shows the history of the Holocaust in a way children and adults can understand how horrid it (The Holocaust) was. http://www.ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/exhibit/
Where It Is and Pictures • The Holocaust Memorial Museum is located near the National Mall. http://history1900s.about.com/od/holocaust/a/ushmm.htm http://www.thetravelzine.com/holocaust_museum_pix.htm

TheWhiteHouse Lauren Theis
Introduction We are going to Washington DC, and we are going to see cool stuff and learn wonderful facts about the history.
How The White House Was Made James Hoban built the White House. Slaves helped build the White House. It took 8 years to build the White House. The White House is 208 years old and that’s pretty old.
Facts There are 132 rooms in the White House, and to me it’s really cool and fun. 44 Presidents lived in the White House. The British burned the White House down which was a terrible mess. The White House stands in the middle of a beautiful landscape that is an 18 –acre plot at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. That’s some pretty cool facts!!!!!!!!
Cool Rooms • The Blue Room –The Blue Room has been the customary place for Presidents’ to formally receive guests. • Family Living Quarters – John Adams and Abigail Adams were the first to live in the White House. • Here are some of the other rooms: • Entrance and Cross Halls • The East Room • The Red Room • The State Dining Room • The Cabinet Room • The Oval Room • The Press Room • Roosevelt Room • Vice President Room • Renovation
After 150 years, the wooden support beams and exterior load- bearing walls of the White House were weak. Engineers declared the building unsafe and said that it would fall if not repaired. In 1948 it was fixed up and looking good.
Summary My project was about the White House and I told you some of the things and cool facts about the White House.
