Wax Museum-Biography Project

Wax Museum-Biography Project
Product Description
This is a fun biography research project for social studies and writing. It's great for classes that study United States history, state history, or world history. The wax museum is a great project to do at the end of the year, after students have learned about many historical figures. Students research a person and write an essay, and then they portray that person as a "wax figure" in a wax museum. This document includes everything you need to plan and execute the wax museum.

There are 6 parts to this project:
*Choosing the person
*Essay
*Acrostic Poem (placed near the student during the wax museum to give guests an understanding of the person's character)
*Backdrop (5-6ft butcher paper that hangs behind the student)
*Costume & Props
*"Be" the person

This document includes:
*Detailed, step by step teacher instructions for planning and executing the project
*Invitation, sign-up sheet, and confirmation note for colleagues. These are editable so you can enter your own information.
*Project Overview sheet for students
*Detailed student instructions for each part of the project
*6 sheets for note taking organized by category
*Grading sheet---this is not a rubric. It is a sheet to document the number of points earned for each part of the project.

This project is always a highlight of our year! It's a great deal of fun to invite the entire school and students' families!
