This is a powerful tool for common core. I have been doing this for the last seven years. Kids now come to fifth grade asking about this project at the beginning of the year. In this packet, you will receive project directions, a rubric, teacher invite letter, tickets, sample project board layout, essay organizational ideas, timeline of due dates, and sample project biography (a fake essay). Plus feel free to contact me with any questions. I am a firm believer in this awesome project!
Students will choose someone to research (categories we have used include: Famous Americans, Inventors, Explorers, Scientists, Celebrities Past & Present, World-Famous People, Presidents) a actually become them in a wax museum. Students will create a science display board and dress up as their chosen person to come to life in a real-life wax museum to give a speech as if they are that person. This is so much fun and a memory the kids will truly love!
