This week Charlotte shared a fantastic fascinating fact about how the Teddy Bear got its name.
She had done some amazing research and was able to teach us all about Theodore Roosevelt who was a famous American President.  He saved a bear and then some famous toymakers decided to make a bear too.  They asked the president if they could call the bear Teddy because that was as nickname for him too.

Charlotte presented her information so well to our class.  I particularly loved that she had chosen this fact on our Teddy Bear Picnic day- I thought that was very clever!

Unfortunately something has gone wrong with my video of Charlotte presenting her fascinating fact.  I recorded her on my phone but it has disappeared! 

I'm really sorry Charlotte, you did a great job and I wish I had the movie clip to share with you.
