This 20 page Wax Museum Project will help your students create an amazing biography research report on a famous American. The culminating part of the project is an amazing Wax Museum, where students dress up as the person they have learned about and stand “still”, like a Wax Museum, until someone walks up to them and presses the “button” on their backdrop. Then students give a short 3 - 4 sentence speech about that person's life. Great learning experience for kids and good P.R. $

work boxes, have one for each student, when they finish their work they can go to their work box and pull out things to work on that the teacher has placed in there. (lets the teacher assign different things for the student/if they need extra practice in an area) - DIFFERENTIATION!
