To recap, the kids chose their historic figures from books that we received from Donor's Choose. Then, they began to conduct research using a booklet from my Wax Museum Biographies packet. After that, they used their information to create posters about their historic figures (also using forms from the packet). Then, they began to write speeches as though they were giving an autobiographical account in first person. While I conferenced with them about their speeches, the kids began to plan their costumes. (I gave the parents about a week to plan this.) Then, after a few days of practicing speeches, we were ready for the real deal! We worked on this project for 30 minutes a day for about 3 weeks, and I am pretty happy with the end result. Check it out!
