Who Am I? First question.

by Mrs. S. on September 17, 2009

in Who Am I

Who am I?

You can guess who I am in a variety of ways, find the strategy that works best for you. Research the events listed below to find out the year this person was born in, or if you love math, solve the problem to get the birth year.

Then find out how old this person is.

Tell me who this person is, and tell me a new thing you learned about them.

This will be part of Thursday morning meeting; bring me the answer by Wednesday afternoon.  If you have four correct answers per month; you can be part of a special reward. (TBD).

In the year I was born, the following things occurred:

1.The 2nd American man went in outer space.

2.The Berlin Wall was constructed

3.First catholic president of the United States takes office

4.“Freedom Riders” firebombed in Alabama.

Or you can do this math equation to get the answer. Solve this:


Now that you know my age, find out how old I am.

Fun Facts about me:

1.I was raised by a Single Mother

2.I went to Harvard

3.I play a good game of basketball and enjoy it.

4.I was recently called a “liar” in public

5.I believe in education and made a speech about it.

Can you guess who I am, you have week, the Internet, books and of course your family to help you figure it out. Good Luck/

Some of you are way too smart and already figured out our person of the week and the year they were born, So here is a bonus question based on the event that took place in the same year.

Before Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire went head to head in 1998, two other players tried to do the same thing in the year our person of the week was born. Who were they are what were they trying to do?
Good luck.
