Name that Celebrity

I've mentioned before that this week we have been working on biographies of famous faces. As part of the project, the students are getting to make replicas of their famous person. Today the Abraham Lincoln group was working with our teacher's aide and she commented that he looked like the pre-Johnny Cash version of the "Man in Black." At which point of course the resounding question was, "Who's Johnny Cash?" To which we replied..."You tell us first who you think he is and we'll tell you if you're right or not." Here were the answers...

"Wasn't he on a cartoon or something?"

"No, no he was the guy with a talking dog on TV."

"Wasn't he really rich, that's why his name was cash."

"Wasn't he the guy in the Men in Black movie with the aliens?"

Finally, one boy said, "Wasn't he a singer?" To which we replied, "Yes, he was."

Another boy said, "Oh, you mean a singer like Michael Jackson?"

Well, I mean, not really, but I guess to a kindergartener, they're all the same.
