Gaspar de Portola

The end of 3rd grade comes with a big presentation where students participate in a "living museum" where they dress up and memorize a script about a local historical figure.  Axel was assigned Gaspar de Portola, a Spanish explorer who colonized much of the coast of southern California and Baja.  He spent weeks memorizing a full page monologue and was very proud of his final performance.
