PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project has students choose a historic figure, research about their lives, write a 5 paragraph essay, a short 30 second speech, and create a display board. This was my year end capstone project for students grades 4-6th and can be modified and adapted to your students.

This packet includes guiding pages for research, writing the essay, correctly citing sources, and writing a speech.

The end project is a "living museum" where students dress up as their historic figure, stand frozen in their exhibit until a person "presses the button" (a circle of construction paper on the floor), then they give their speech, and go back to being frozen again.

It is great fun and the students love ending the year on this fun project.

parent letter
due date breakdown
