Firstborn had to represent an American from the 20th century. She chose Amelia Earhart. I"ll be honest, it was because she had a cool jacket already for the costume. She wrote an amazing report and presented it in first-person to her class, leaving them all wondering what really happened on that last flight of hers. I kid you not, with a plastic grocery bag, duck tape, and aluminum foil, she and her dad made this flight helmet. She also made this cool Electra plane out of water bottles, cardboard, duck tape, and pringle's can lids. Well done, Amelia! Interestingly, just this week the news boasts they are a little closer to solving her mysterious death.
