Our classroom, Room 204 from Olympic View Elementary School worked on a project
that included many different phases of learning. In the end, we came up with the entire
history of Olympic View!
First, we interviewed senior citizens who went to this very school to find out what it
was like back when they attended. We had several interviewees, and learned lots of
information. We took the information that we heard, and wrote a total of 5 scripts with it.
When our scripts were perfected, we went to a recording studio called Jack Straw
Production.. We had professional recorders help us make good recordings, and in the end, we
even got a C-D of them all!
After we finished recording, we started to study even more about our school! We
even managed to complete a timeline including important events from each decade that
effected our school.
Then our class broke up into 10 groups to study each decade from 1900-2002. Mrs.
Olson asked each student to make 3 slides, the first slide told a major event of a decade, the
second slide told the events at Olympic View during a certain decade, and the third slide
connected the events of the decade to the events happening at Olympic View. We have
created this to honor our 100th anniversary.

In 1900 America had only 8000 cars. There were too many accidents
because people were speeding and running people over. To control the
drivers, local traffic laws decided in 1902 the state of Vermont required
every car to have a person waving a red flag. If they were a women
driver. Women were considered bad drivers in the 1900’s. Every car
cost $3000 to by and $3000 to run each year. There were some drivers
that got stuck in the mud. This problem was solved embarrassingly by a
farmers horse pulling out the car. In the 1900’s drivers were starting to
be controlled. By Peter
•Automobiles Effected O.V. because they changed the way people went
to work. Some kids might have had toy cars or wanted a car.

If the Wright Brother’s never invented the airplane what would happen?
In 1903 in Dayton, Ohio at Wilbur and Orville Wright’s bicycle
shop, the Wright Brother’s were putting finishing touches on a Whopper
Flying Machine. They tested the plane and the best flight was 59
seconds and 842 feet. Nine days before Kitty Hawk, the Secretary of
Smithsonian Institute and Samuel Langley had tried to launch a winged
contraption off of a house boat on the Potomac River in Washington D.C.
Langley was backed by a $50,000 grant by The War department. Those
are some of the events that happened during the first flight.

In 1904, during the third Olympics some
problems started. Only six foreign teams showed up to
the St. Louis Olympics, because people were going at
the worlds Fair instead of the Olympics. As a result the
US won 22 out of 23 track and field events. Then the
games became a big mess among the various athlete club
that had sponsored US competitors. Also it was a athlete
freak show were the athletes were arguing about almost
everything to do with the Olympics.

Albert Einstien
World War 1
From 1914 to 1918 Britain, France, Germany,
America, Russia and Japan fought each other in what's
called the First World War. It started when Arch duke
Francis Ferdinande was shot. Also the cruise liner
Lusitania was torpedoed off the Irish coast by a
German sub. 1,200 lives were lost. It caused Britain to
join the War.
America joined the war effort in 1917 after Russia
pulled out of the war. 8 million participated, 4 million
were killed, wounded or missing. World War I became
known as the War to End all Wars.

World War I ends in 1918
Because of world events of this decade, the effects that it might
have had on students at O.V. were that some students fathers
and older brothers marched off to war, some never seen again.
This effected students grades because they where thinking
of their lost family. Also the thought of the roof caving in on
the 70 students and the tension of the war caused students grades
to drop.The new school helped ease some tension of the roof
caving in.
Albert Einstein was born in 1905. Einstein
helped invent the Atomic Bomb that ended
World War II. In 1905 at the age of 26, he
published the simple-sounding of E=mc2 ( E
stands for energy, M stands for mass, and C
stands for speed of light). Einstein died in
Princeton, New Jersey in April of 1955.

the world. Today in schools people still use

In the 1920’s sports became of more importance. With Babe
Ruth who hit 60 home runs (the record of the time) and Big
Bill (the greatest tennis player of the time) fans went crazy.
And, in 1927, 104,942 fans paid a record of $2,658,600 to
watch Jack Dempsey in the ring. As well as men athletes,
women athletes shined in the lime light. Helen Wills a.k.a
“Little Miss Poker Face” a tennis player who won every
match she entered and Gertrude Elderly who was the first
woman to swim the English Channel and in 14 hrs and
31mns (almost 2 hrs faster than the men’s record) showed
the world that women play a crucial role in sports.

And though girls had to where

Man O’ War was a great horse in 1920’s this horse was
a big combination of size,which was 1,150 pounds and
his speed.

For an average American during the Great
Depression, jobs were scarce. Families were evicted
from their homes and forced to live on the streets.
People who were in need of jobs waited for trains to
start and then jumped on them without a ticket. Many
people in search of jobs left their families.
After thousands of people had lost their homes
and jobs because of the stock market crash in 1929,
rough shacks were built in vacant areas of many cities.
The shacks became known as Hoovervilles, in
reference to Herbert Hoover, who was president when
the great depression struck. Hoover wasn’t
considered very helpful during this time. Times were
rough, and America could only wait to recover.
The Great Depression was a horrible thing that tore up the
nation with poverty. It all started when the stock market crashed in
1929. About 3 1/2 years later the banking system of the United
States had collapsed . 13-15 million people were out of work (that’s
about 25% of the population!)
“We saw a crowd of some 50 men fighting over a barrel of garbage
set outside the back door of a restaurant.” Said an observer in
Chicago. Hunger was every where.
Children played the game of eviction with their dolls, it was a
known and normal thing. In 1931,even before banking had
collapsed, 20,000 people had committed suicide,there was much
more to come. By Tess, Katies and Natalie

By the late 1930’s the Depression was over
During the 1940s World War II
the Japanese was banned from
Olympic view and a lot of friends
were lost. The Pearl Harbor
bombing took place the 1940s. A lot
of people were killed during the
bombing. The Olympics were
canceled and baseball season was
going on. By Tylor
Jackie Robinson was an African
American and was the first black to ever play
in the All American League. He played on the
Brooklyn Dodgers. He was abused and beat
up, but played with a good attitude
and after a while he broke the color line. He
made it so all people of different colors could
play baseball. More teams were formed and a
new league was formed called the National
League, because more teams were formed
where blacks and whites played baseball on
the same team.
World War II was caused by a number of issues.
The cause of the war was mostly about stopping Nazi Germany
from taking over the world. The Nazis were a dictatorship, which
is where the government chooses and makes the laws. The Nazis
who had taken over the government wanted to kill mainly Jews.
The major powers were: Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, Russia
and the U.S. By Elliot
What was going on at O.V. in World War II? There
weren't as many teachers because a lot men went to war
and the women had to work in the factory. Another
event that happened was that there was a lot of food
rationing. There were meatless Mondays and meatless
Wednesdays. There were victory gardens that people grew
themselves, that grew vegetables such as turnips, carrots and
potatoes which none of the kids really liked.
In the 40’s there had been some improvements on
the school of O.V. some of the people asked
for an annexation also it made people realize more
about other countries in the world. Like RUSSIA,
Germany, Japan and Britain. Also the playground
was divided into four sections k-2 and 3-5 also
girls had to wear skirts and boys had to wear pants. The teachers
were very strict.
The Olympics were held in 1948. This was
the first Olympics since 1936 because of WWII.
They were held in ST.Moritz Switzerland.
Having the Olympics meant that since the
war was over, life was getting back to normal. Dick Button from U.S.A. won the
gold medal for men’s figure skating in
the Olympics. By Jorge
During the Olympics, World War II
Because of their involvement in WW II,
the Japanese were banned from Olympic
View School, and many Japanese were sent to
Internment Camps. Some of the parents left
to fight or help with the war.
During World War II, the Pearl Harbor
bombing took place, and a lot of people were
sad that so many US Soldiers died. The
Olympics were canceled and the people were
mad because they had been looking forward to
the events.
In June 25, 1950 President Harry Truman decided to help South
Korea, because North Korea and China were invading South Korea. If
United states did not help South Korea, North Korea would of captured
all of Korea. This is important in history because United States helped
South Korea stop North Korea and China in world domination, which
means taking over the world. Also North Korea tried to prevent everyone
from becoming a communist.
Dwight D. Eisenhower became president in 1952.Eisenhower
promised he would promptly end the Korean war. So an armistice, which
means end to arms, was signed on July 27, 1953.
There were no winners in the Korean War. Korea remained a land
divided, as it had been before the war. North and South Korea were in
ruins, mostly every thing was destroyed. Both sides lost over hundreds
of thousands men. America lost thirty four thousand soldiers.
Olympic View students lost there dads, brothers and friends. It
was a very sad time. By Yejeong
•Girls and boys had separate playgrounds
•Baby boomers were born
•Beginning of end of segregation
•After world war 2 lots of schools were built
•Brown vs. Board of education
•Thomas E. Catching retired
Because of the Korean War, the effects that it might have had on
students in Olympic View were very sad, because lots of Olympic
View dads, brothers, uncle, and friends were in the army .
America lost 34 thousand soldiers, so most of the students lost
their dads, brothers, uncles, and friends. Also lots of Korean
students families were sad because some of their families are still in
Korea and they are being bombed by North Korea and China.
Men,women, and children all over the world have fashions and
styles that change from time to time. In the U.S.A., we have had a new
style almost every decade. For example, 52 years ago, in the 1950’s,
fashions and styles were completely different. Back then, girls wore
styles like: Stilletto heels, a very popular shoe that had a thin stilt like
heel, Poodle skirts which were popular skirts which were usually pink
and always had flare, and bright red lip stick. Boys wore styles like:
Denim Jackets, which were totally cool, Gray flannel suits, sometimes
with a colored shirt, and very narrow hats. Also people loved to were
new product clothing such as: sports wear and wash and wear fabrics.
Now, we mostly have T-shirts and jeans.
Today, when schools have a “Sock Hop” people imitate the look
of the 50’s. Just imagine if everyday people dressed like someone from
the 50’s, wouldn’t that be strange. By Maddie

• Baby Boom

Cold and Korean War:
People did various Drills like air raid drills, children
were scared along with adult that we would go to war with
Russia. People sometimes didn’t feel safe.
1945 to 1991 were known as the Cold War years. A cold war is
was when two countries were rivals and didn’t talk to each other.During this
time conflicts were fought mostly with words and economic weapons.
Economic weapons or money issues are where the government uses money
as a weapon. During the Cold War, both the Americans and Soviets (Who
are Russians) were frightened by each other, by making it hard for people to
live by raising cost of items and lowering pay.
Another tool for fighting during the Cold War, was the creation of
the Berlin wall. The Berlin Wall was a fortified wall surrounding West
Berlin. The Berlin Wall was an obvious symbol of the Cold War. The wall
was built in 1961 and on the west side was communist and on the east side
was Republic governments. The wall came down when East Germany was
about to collapse, because Hungary let the East Germans pass through
Hungary on their way to West Germany and Austria. Also on November 9,
enthusiastic private citizens began to demolish whole sections of the wall.
East Germany eventually helped destroy the Berlin Wall and reunite with
West Germany.
Finally, I think the Cold war was very important to history because
if we hadn’t stopped the Soviets, they might of controlled more territory.

The Cold War effected Olympic View, because kids in Olympic View had
to do the Duck And Cover Drill regularly. The Duck and Cover Drill is were
everyone goes into the hall and puts their hands over their head. This drill was
used just incase of an air raid from Russia. It also could have effected Olympic
View, because everyone was scared that Russia would bomb them and Russians
was afraid that we’d bomb them. Another action people did was building bomb
shelters. One of every twenty Americans made bomb shelters in their home,
because they were afraid the Russians were going to bomb them. That’s how the
Cold War effected Olympic View.
In the past, blacks were treated unjustly. At school, black kids were
separated from the white kids. They drank from different fountains, sat at different
tables at lunch, and used different bathrooms then white kids. For black adults who
rode the bus to work, they had to sit in the back of the metro bus.
The Civil Rights Movement took place in the 1960’s, starting in the
southern states. It’s meaning was to create equal rights for blacks non-violently.
Dr. Martin Luther King J.R., a black preacher, was the most heroic person
in the Civil Rights Movement. He helped by leading people in such things as
boycotts and peace marches. His famous “I Have A Dream” speech, was read at
the Lincoln memorial, on August 28, 1963. This speech changed the future lives of
In 1964, King won the Nobel Peace Prize, and in 1965, he led a peace
march in Selma, Alabama, for blacks rights to vote. Tragically, his life was cut
short when he was shot and killed in 1968. Even though Martin Luther King died,
his vision of equal rights lives on. By Alex

The effects that the Civil Rights Movement might have had on O.V.
students were that there were a lot of black students coming into the
North end of Seattle from the South end, to get the same opportunities

schools because of the Civil Rights Movement.
Born Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali was and still is a famous black boxer
who would often write poetry. In the ring he would say , “Float like
butterfly, sting like a bee.” When he was younger he would spend many
hours a day with a trainer practicing to box like the pro he was.
He announced that he had joined a black lead Muslim group and he
became a part time minister. Ali changed his name from Cassius Clay to
Muhammad Ali.
Ali had a very successful life. He was apart time minister, an excellent
boxer and a talented poet. The crowed would predict he would lose and
he would win and they would judge him because of his color. Ali is
very important to our history because he changed the way people
thought about him, and became a hero. By Briana

The effect that Ali had on the students is that he encouraged
them to never give up on what they believing. People never
thought that a black man could be so successful, wealthy, and
influential. Ali influence was during the time where schools
were changing and becoming multi-ethnic.
Dr. Christiaan Barnard carried out the first heart
transplant. A heart transplant is when somebody gets their
unhealthy heart taken out of them, and they get a good healthy
heart (from somebody else) put inside them.
Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed this first heart
transplant in South Africa, in the early 1960’s. If this never
happened people would die of heart problems like: heart attacks,
heart disease, and other heart problems. By Esther

In the early 1970’s young men and women continued to wear
ragged denim blue jeans or army fatigues, cotton T-shirts and long
hair. Sometimes their blue jeans were decorated with peace symbols.
Some people wanted to stand out from the crowd, by wearing Calvin
Klein's special blue jeans, that are decorated with rhinestones or silver
In the mid 1970’s menswear entered a “peacock period” with
brightly colored polyester (stretchy pants) leisure wear with purple
rose, orange and green patterns. On the weekends, many men wore
jogging suits, even those who had no intention of ever jogging. Some
women followed this fashion trend to.

pants. Girls were know allowed to wear pants to school, and in public.

Major-League baseball players went on strike on June 12, 1981.
The players and team owners could not reach an agreement over salaries.
The players lost $30 million in wages and team owners lost about $166
million in revenue.
People who had always enjoyed either going to ball games or
watching baseball on TV became frustrated. Many wondered weather the
fan's would become so turned off that they might not return to watching
baseball once the strike settled down. However, baseball survived.
The fan’s did not desert their favorite teams by the end of the
decade, 50 million fan’s were attending major-league games each year.
Revenues were more than $1 billion a year, including TV deals.

• The style for teens and grown ups in the 1980’s were called the
“yuppie style.”The typical clothing for yuppie females were jeans
khakis, or long shirts with conservative plaid prints or narrow stripes;
white v-neck or penny loafers.
• The fitness craze led to a new fashion. The styles were one piece
body suits,stirrup pants, logging, tank top, and jogging shorts.These
items were made out of snug-fitting fabrics such as Spandex.
• “Yuppie males”wore dark colored business suits to work which were
called the outfit for professional working man was considered a white
dress shirt, silk tie, tailored jacket, and leather wing tipped shoes.
• The casual style for teens , punks, or “Grunge”was usually black
clothing, leather jacket,and ripped jeans. The hair style was curly,
Mohawks, or spikes hair dyed bright colors. Most punks had earrings
on either nose,ears,and some other body parts .
Fashion effected O.V. by
students judging each other
by their looks. The students
would try to be popular by
their judging others on their
looks and who wore the
different styles that changed
during the years.
Ronald Reagan was the first actor to become president after he
defeated Jimmy Carter in 1981. (The 39th president.)
It was a landslide vote (which means a vote where one side got
tons of votes and the other side got little votes.) Lots of people were
not happy with the ways of president Carter.
Reagan had some political experience when he was governor of
California. He was a great communicator and Reagan made friends
with the leaders of China. Some said it was odd to have an actor for
president, some did not agree because they loved and admired him. Most
people thought Reagan created a huge money spending problem
for our government . He is still living, but diagnosed with Alzheimer.
When Ronald Reagan
became president people
started spending more money
on material things and the
military became more
popular due to government
When the baseball strike
happened people started
spending money in sports.

Because of the world events
of this decade, the effects it might
of had on O.V students were people
started spending money on material things
such as houses, clothes and luxury items
because of the Reagan’s spending habits.
People were able to purchase items on credit,
buy now, pay later! The military became
famous because Ronald Reagan’s
administration spent more money on the
military and less on social issues such as
funding for schools and poverty. So some
families became poorer and others richer.
This was a time for spending money.
Same with the base ball strike, which created
higher salaries for sports stars. Students
judged each other by their looks. And
Olympic View got a new school building.

Saddam Hussein tried to take over the Middle East's
oil resources in 1990. The United States was an ally of
middle east, so they helped out a war called Desert
Storm. The U.S. was very worried Saddam Hussein
would use biological and chemical weapons because
they are easy to produce and store. So the U.S. tried to
find and destroy Hussein’s weapons. The war ended
by middle East excepting the U.S. terms.

In April 19,1995 in Oklahoma City Timothy James Mcveigh and Lynn
Nichols hid a bomb in a rented truck. The bomb exploded at the Affred P.
Federal Building killing 168 people and injuring more then 500. It killed
19 children under the age of 5. The federal government said that the
motive for the bombing was that people were against the government. An
hour and a half after the blast, Mcveigh was arrested on an unrelated
weapons violation during a routine traffic stop. Both Mcveigh and
Nichols were soldiers. Terry Lynn Nichols was charged as an accomplice
on May 10, 1995. On August 11, 1995 both Mcveigh and Nichols were
charge by a grand jury for murder conspiracy to commit conspiracy to
use weapon of mass destruction. In October, attorney General Reno
authorized federal prosecutor to seek the death penalty in both cases.

When computers got put in class rooms students could go on the internet.
But when the Bombing in Oklahoma happened students were scared to
go to school. They might not have felt safe in school which effected
students education. These were the effects of the Oklahoma Bombing.
This is a real photo of the World Trade
Center’s Twin Towers being attacked by Osama
Bin Laddin and his terrorists.
People all over the world were
devastated. They all were sad
even in Europe and Asia.
Police and Firemen lost their lives to try to save many
lives. Many civilians were killed in the collapse,
including many children.
We all wish that Bin Laddin had not done the attack.
Although he was from Afghanistan, since we are now at
war, we don’t want to hurt any civilians living near Bin
Laddin’s caves. By Sonoma
On September 11, 2001 something terrible
happened; something that I am sure
affected us all. Three to five Afghanistan
males created a plan to hijack two planes
and crash them into the twin towers.They
succeeded in this plan. 10,000 people died
instantly when the plane hit!
In conclusion we are now in a war
with the Afghanistan and our airlines are
better protected and ready!
On O.V. Students
Because the plains crashed
into the twin towers …..
Because the Afghanistan men
crashed into the twin
Because of all the tragedy…..

We are now in a war with the
Afghanistan which makes kids
People are much nicer to each
