David`s teacher is a believer in the importance of the colonial era in American history, which is good. She even got to go to Virginia on some sort of teachers` trip, where she visited Williamsburg and Jamestown.
At the end of the colonial section, the teacher had the students give individual presentations related to colonial history. One option was to impersonate a colonial American. So David impersonated Isaac Wall, my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather (and thus David`s great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather) who lived in Virginia in the early 1700s. David wore a period costume, discussed agricultural techniques of the era with the aid of a plowshare and sickle, and pointed out that Isaac Wall was the ancestor of contemporary 5th-grader David Wall. My wife, who attended, said David did well on his presentation, and I was glad to hear that.
