This 25 page Wax Museum Project can help your students produce a biography research set of a famous American. The culminating area of the project is definitely an amazing Wax Museum, where students be the individual they’ve discovered and stand “still”, just like a Wax Museum, until someone walks as much as them and presses the “button” on their own backdrop. Then students provide a short three to four sentence speech about this person’s existence.
I truly love this project! The children figure all this out regarding their celebrity but besides as being a great chance to learn, it is also a very fun here we are at parents and throughout the college who attend.
I’ve done the Wax Museum in 2 different venues: within my classroom (see Teacher Notes for any detailed explanation) and during a workout session with other classes. It’s a “highlight” kind of experience that the students will remember.
