It is time to start the Famous Hoosier Research Project also known as the Wax Museum Project.
Students select 3 famous Hoosiers that they are interested in researching. Then the teacher tries to give students their top pick to do their project on. Once their famous Hoosier has been approved by the teacher, the students will take research notes, write a report, and write a short first-person speech where the famous Hoosier comes to life during the Wax Museum. Students will dress in character and/or have props for the speech.
Essays consist of 5 paragraphs. The topics for these paragraphs are:
Paragraph 1: Introduction
Paragraph 2: Birth, Family, and Early Childhood
Paragraph 3: Adult life, College, Work/Jobs, Major Accomplishments, Married/Children
Paragraph 4: Importance to Indiana
Paragraph 5: Death or what they are doing now, and closing
*Interesting Facts should be sprinkled throughout.
Hope you enjoy this project as much as my students do.
