The stories of Babe Ruth, Albert Einstein, and Abraham Lincoln came to life in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Fifth graders at Covington Elementary researched their favorite person, dressed up like them, and then gave a short presentation about them.

This year's theme is Great Americans in History. Presidents, athletes, scientists, even musicians were some of those featured in this interactive museum.

It's a learning experience for the public and the kids.

"One kid can make a difference by telling stuff about their great American. And I think it's a lot of fun to do because parents and children can come and see you and learn a lot of stuff about you," said Sheila Diaz, "Betsy Ross".

"I really liked some of her quotes, her favorite is probably 'we must stop thinking about the individual and start thinking about what is best for the society'," said Rachael McNear, "Hillary Clinton".

"I think it's fun, but also tiring, but I liked it," said Angie Zermeno, "Walt Disney".

And yes, even Elvis was in the house. About 77 students took part in the event.
