Wax Museum Featuring 2nd Grade Students

Every year in the spring, the second graders have a Wax Museum. The children are first assigned a famous person they are interested in studying who made a positive difference in our world.  The children do their own research, find 10 interesting facts about their famous person, and then write a report that is in first person point of view.  On the day of the Wax Museum, the children  arrive dressed as their famous person complete with props ready to present their report to their audience which consists of parents and students in grades above and below them.  The children have a red paper “button” on the floor in front of them that the audience will push to hear what their character has to say.  Everyone enjoys hearing from all the different characters and learning more about the people who made a difference in our world.
