 Ds2 is in the middle of working on his Famous Hoosier report. All 4th graders have to research someone famous from Indiana, write a report and oral presentation, and the final project is a "Wax Museum" where they dress up as their famous person and tell about their life.

Ds2 is learning about artist Robert Indiana. You may recognize this sculpture of his:

So- who is from your state that we've heard of?

Toby Keith.

I couldn't name you any of his songs, but I know he's a country singer.

 Joe Namath, Johnny Unitas, Mike Ditka, Joe Montana, Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, George Blanda . . . that is just a few of the NFL people that I can think of off the top of my head.  Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is from here as is former NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer.

Perry Como, Andy Warhol, Christina Aguilera, Bret Michaels, Henry Mancini, Jimmy Stewart, Gene Kelly, Shirley Jones, Michael Keaton, Sharon Stone . . . again off the top of my head.

If I did some research, I'm sure that I'd come up with more.

 Too bad most of them really aren't from there. ;)  See my list, there are several who are really from PA.
