Wax Museum Projects

Mrs. Torres' class presented their biography projects on Wednesday March 4th, 2020. 4th and 5th grade students worked for 5 weeks utilizing online resources and the school library to learn how to research, collect images of their person and write biographies in order to execute their oral presentations in time to meet their deadlines. It was their biggest project to date!

Student with tri-fold presentation at Wax Museum Projects

The theme of their biographical projects was "The Wax Museum" which included not only tri-fold presentations, but having the student dress up as the person they researched to reflect that theme.The students were asked to describe the person's early life, their accomplishments as well as interesting facts in order to engage the audience further. During these last 5 weeks the students learned how to:

  • Ask relevant questions before beginning a research project

  • Take notes and categorize information as they create graphic organizers

  • Improve comprehension as they read and skim text for main ideas and details

  • Develop research skills (book and Internet) with the purpose of teaching the class what they have learned

Great job students for these informative, creative and engaging presentations!
