I went to Monticello. Monticello is a house that Thomas Jefferson built. Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States.
I took a tour of the house. It was built in the 1770’s. I also went outside on Thomas Jefferson’s land. There was a really big tree trunk.
I learned about Thomas Jefferson’s inventions. He built a special clock that told the time and the day of the week. He didn’t have room for Saturday so he had to put it in the basement.
I got to try a lot of Thomas Jefferson’s gadgets. I wrote with a polygraph. It has two pens and makes a copy of whatever you write.
This is me in the kitchen. It is outside, underground.
This is the ice house. They kept snow and ice in a huge hole in the ground.
This is me and my brother with Thomas Jefferson’s statue.
The kids played chess back then. My dad taught me to play chess on the trip.
I tried to make a new building like Monticello on the computer.
It was a fun trip. Since Thomas Jefferson was an inventor, I made two inventions: a motor and a telegraph.
