  1. If we could give a gift to Dian Fossey, we would give her a pet gorilla. She could name the gorilla whatever she wanted to name it. We would give her a gorilla because she had a compassion and love for gorillas. She would love the gorilla and care for the gorilla. Dian would probably name the gorilla along the lines of Digit. That is why we would give a gift to Dian Fossey. Dean and Brayden

  2. If I could give a gift to the immigrants of Ellis Island , I would give them Food, water and a home. I would give them food, water and an home because they were on a boat for two months and they wanted to get off the boat, some even died from hunger. When they arrived at Ellis Island, they were homeless and hungry. But they were very happy to be in a free country. They were also happy to be off the boat. That is why I would give them food, water and a home.

  3. If I could give a gift to a famous person it would be Francis Scott Key. We would give him the Star Spangled Banner. We would give it to him because he wrote it. We would tell him about how it was set to music. We would sign our names on the poem so he can remember the visit that we gave him .Brooks J. Lillian M.

  4. We are going to give a gift to Dian Fossey. If we could give a gift to her it would be her favorite gorilla Digit. If we could get digit back I would be so happy for her and Digit. If Digit was still alive we would go find her and give Dian Fossey her gorilla . By Sara and Dominick

  5. Nancy Ward deserved a present which would be better clothes and better treatment for her. She was an awesome person. Nancy saved a woman named Lydia Bean. She did not get treated well until she went to war and opened an Inn with her new husband Bryan Ward. Ward followed her uncle and tried to keep peace between the two tribes.

  6. If we could give a gift to the Aborigines we would give them maracas and bongos.

    We would give them a maraca since maracas are from Mexico and these indigenous people are not familiar with these maracas! We think that maracas will be a good present since maracas have color and Aborigines love color! Aborigines will love maracas since color is cultural to them.


    We would also give them bongos since they use art, and music. They might want to have an new experience. Bongos are the perfect new experience. They could use bongos to make an new traditional dance or song. Bongos are an great present for the Aborigines!

    That is what we would give the Aborigines.

  8. We would give a gift the immigrants at Ellis Island. We would give a gift to them because they struggled throughout getting to Ellis Island. The immigrants didn’t have medicine or much food. Our gift would be medicine and food to the immigrants. That would help them survive in the new world. That is the gift the immigrants would receive.

  9. If I could give a gift to a famous person I would give it to Dian Fossey. I would give it to Dian Fossey because poachers killed her favorite gorilla, Digit. If I could make Digit come back to life I would give him to her. They spent a lot of time with each other. That is why I would bring life back to Digit and give him to Dian Fossey.
