After studying biographies, students participate in a "Living Wax Museum" where they "become" the person they have studied who was a failure before becoming a success! They dress as their character, prepare a visual display, and perform for as large an audience as their teacher decides upon! Make it a day of fun and education for the entire school!
Studying famous people who failed on their way to success is highly motivational. The message: Don’t give up! Just because you fail at something doesn’t mean you ARE a failure! It may just be a step on your path to success! Learn from it!
Packet includes instructions, list of "failures turned successes," Schedule for visiting classes, scoring rubric, sample "Scavenger Hunt" for museum visitors, and a "button" for visitors to press for the "wax figure" to come to life and give their monologue!!!
