If you are looking for an interactive product to immerse your students into history, this is the product for you!
A Wax Museum asks students to pick a person, read a biography, complete research and then actually become the person on Wax Museum Day! This project can be presented in class, to other classes, and parents can be involved as well! The best thing about this project is that it asks students to be creative while integrating ELA and SS standards. This project can also be modified to fit the needs of your curriculum. Fourth grade can choose people from their state, fifth grade can choose anyone from US History!
