Christopher Columbus (1451 – 1506) Blue House

Christopher Columbus was an explorer and trader who crossed the Atlantic Ocean and reached the Americas on October 12th 1492 under the flag of Castilian Spain. He believed that the earth was a relatively small sphere, and argued that a ship could reach the Far East via a westward course. Christopher Columbus is one of the best-know of all explorers. He is famous for his voyage in 1492, when he “discovered” America while he was looking for a way to sail to Asia. Columbus had this strong courage of conviction to pursue his dreams against all odds with a strong sense of perseverance.


Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) Green House

Gandhi was a gentle man who had a heart full of compassion for people, animals and nature. He believed in non-violent resolution of conflicts and devoted his life to peace and to making the world a more just place. Through his actions, leadership and willpower, he managed to inspire India people to join in his non-violent protests, and together they freed India from British rule. He possessed limitless physical and moral strength. Gandhiji was a person who believed in the dignity of man and left us all a legacy of ahimsa, love and tolerance. He developed a method of action based upon the principles of courage, nonviolence and truth called Satyagraha. He believed that the way people behave is more important than what they achieve.


Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Ochre House

Einstein is considered by many as the greatest astrophysicist. Einstein’s many visionary scientific contributions include the equivalence of mass and energy (E=mc2), how the maximum speed limit of light affects measurements of time and space(special relatively), and a more accurate theory of gravity based on simple geometric concepts (general relatively).Albert Einstein was a thoughtful person, he loved to think about things. Albert Einstein was a great man, and he was very important to science. We should learn from him that no matter what field you enjoy, you should stick with your desire. We should learn that it is ok to think differently than other people.


Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) Red House

Leonardo was known as the ultimate Renaissance man because he was perhaps the most widely talented person ever to have lived. Da Vinci is a favorite with the children studying art history because of this renaissance quality not only was he a consummate painter and sculptor; he was a great inventor, military engineer, scientist, botanist and mathematician. Leonardo was left to himself quite often, and perhaps this solitude is what we’re still grateful for five centuries later, as he spent his days outdoors studying birds, plants and nature. Leonardo grew up to be a great artist and a great scientist. He was one of the first artists to draw things exactly as he saw them in nature. His keen sense of observation is what shaped him as the best painter of all times.
