Wax Museum

A fifth grade project at my school is a Christian hero biography/wax museum project. Each student:
  • reads a Christian hero biography
  • takes notes while reading
  • types notes (must have sections are: family, language, compare/contrast, timeline with 10 events, events/travels, accomplishments, obstacles, and a Bible verse)
  • displays notes on a trifold board
  • writes and memorizes a two minute (give or take) script 
As you can tell, it is a big project. It took a lot of time, but I am so proud of how it turned out. It was fun seeing the final product of their hard work.
 



 
We are wrapping up our Great Depression unit this coming week. I integrated a lot during this unit and the students have learned so much about this era. At the beginning of the unit, I created this little area to display books related to the Great Depression and to gain student interest.
 
I did a book talk about the chapter books shown below. We did a book raffle afterwards and EVERY single book was checked out! LOVE! 
One of the resources we used during the unit was this USA Studies Weekly newspaper.
 
I love to read picture books and this book did not disappoint! 
 
In Writing, we wrote about the Great Depression in our Family Message Journals. This student did SUCH a good job!
