Junior Ranger Challenge -- Be a Storyteller
One of our jobs as rangers is to tell stories that have been forgotten. Thaddeus Kosciuszko has bridges, towns, and even a mountain named after him, but most people don't know anything about him.
At the Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial, we help visitors learn about the Polish patriot's life and work. That means we have to take some facts and tell it like a story. Sometimes people remember stories better than they remember dates or a list of facts.
Now it's your turn to be a storyteller. Help us spread the word about Thaddeus Kosciuszko.
Your challenge: Share Thaddeus Kosciuszko's Story with Three People
Directions1. Read the information below about the military engineer and freedom fighter named Thaddeus Kosciuszko.
2. On a piece of paper, write down three parts of the story that you want to tell others.
3. Try to memorize the three parts so that you can tell others the story without looking at your paper.
