Description

If you're looking for a fun, new way to have your students complete a research task - this is it! Assign a historic explorer to each student. After becoming an expert on them, students will present "wax museum" style. This means that they will dress up as the explorer and come to life when someone pushes the button on their informational display. This is a great way to integrate a bit of Drama to your Social Studies lessons!

What's Included?

♥ Detailed, step-by-step lesson plan

♥ 9 Student samples

♥ Teacher and student planning pages

♥ 14 Good copy pages

♥ Peer reviews

♥ Student self-assessments

♥ 2 versions of teacher assessment (points based and proficiency based)
