If you're like me, you're tired of spinning your wheels when it comes to research projects. You want something more than the typical elementary school animal reports! Having my students study biographies of historical figures allows me to mesh Reading with Social Studies in a really fun, engaging, rigorous way! Transform your students into wax statues... and make your classroom into a museum! Let the learning begin! This 29 page unit includes extension ideas, note-cards, a Biography Book to organize notes, an invitation and parent letter, a rubric, on buttons, pocket labels, a Biography genre poster and more!
Just wondering... I want to add more writing in, would you be able to make a page like the note card pages (2 pages per sheet) that could be for journalling? Maybe with "date: _____" at the top? I want them to write a journal from their character's perspective. I could probably figure out how to cut and paste a hard copy if you can't, but thought I'd ask first.

Hello. I just purchased this. I love it, but there are a couple of minor things I need to change to fit my assignment. Is there a way I can edit your version? I'm having trouble.

I recently purchased your Wax Museum packet and I can not get it to download for me. I do work on a MAC but each time I try, it takes me to a web-site that looks like it is not finished and asks me to log in to to TPT. I am already logged in when I try to download it. I appreciate any help you can give me as I would like to have used this starting today (our first day back from break).
Hi! It sounds like this may be a site-issue, meaning it may be a glitch on TpT's end. I'm not sure what could be causing that kind of a problem. If I were you, I would contact TpT, and let them know the issues you are having so that they know it's happening. Are you able to download other items? If they can't help you resolve the issue, please email me at email@example.com. :)

Hi again! Please forgive me! I finally got the Wax Museum Biographies to open. I'm so excited to use this unit. Thanks so much!
To my knowledge, nobody else has had this problem. I know that TpT has been really buggy since they updated the platform and made improvements to the site. Please try to download it again, and if it still won't work for you, please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sure thing! I had to redo the whole document to be able to add something else in since my old computer took a nose-dive and my old software won't work on my new computer. It should be up tonight. Make sure you download a the updated version! :)

Hi! I was wondering if you could possibly add a page that says "obstacles". It is part of our standards. I love the product! Thank you so much!
