Thomas Jefferson

Historical Character Assembly Program | Grades: K-8


History comes alive!
Bring the Sage of Monticello to your school...prior to his death on July 4, 1826. While known as our Third President, Mr. Jefferson also wanted to be remembered as a scientist, farmer, architect, inventor, and author of the Declaration of Independence.  Allow Thomas Jefferson to share his experiences with your school this year in an interactive presentation you and your students will never forget.

This interactive portrayal by professional school performer Peter Small grew out of his love of history, while he taught history in the greater Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. areas. He has performed for a wide range of national audiences, including the Presidential Libraries of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Herbert Hoover, and George Bush and the History Channel.  "I found the best way to do it with the children was to make it interactive," Small says. "Get them involved with the story, otherwise it can be just as dull as regular history lesson."
