It IS Mount Rushmore National Memorial indeed.

Well done Sonia (10C) ! Now can you, or anyone else, name the 4 people carved in the mountain (in the right order, of course) ? Don't forget to click on "Ajouter un commentaire" to send your answer.


Well done Juliana, is is the national memorial of 4 American Presidents : George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.  Each head is about 60 feet high.

The construction of the memorial began in 1927. The rock was so hard that more than 90 % of the mountain was carved using dynamite ! The faces of the presidents were carved one after the other.

Mount Rushmore is one of the most visited monuments in the United States.


A special thank-you to Mme Monin and Juliana (10C) who both answered the question correctly. Congratulations !


Next picture will be posted on Tuesday.
