If you are studying authors or working on research and presentation skills, this engaging project is can be a great cumulative tool.
In this Wax Museum style project students will read a fiction book, then write and present a report about the author from a main character’s perspective. Students will present their report in first person, as if they are the character, speaking about the author who created them –like they are a part of a Living Wax Museum.
There are three main components to this project, a written speech, an oral presentation, a tri-fold board creation. This can be conducted large scale as a multi-grade level project with invited family and community members or can be conducted within the classroom.
