The students will be presenting a Wax Museum presentation to groups of third or fourth graders. Each student will choose a person to read about and study. They will take notes and develop a speech and present their two-minute speech to a third or fourth grade group of students. The students have a packet containing dates for the completion of various stages of the assignment. The presentation will be on Monday June 10th for McGourty homeroom and Tuesday June 11th for Forber homeroom students.
This is primarily an at home assignment. Students will be given guidance and support, but the bulk of the work is independent. The dates for steps in the process are meant to keep all on track. Students have an element of choice and enjoy the opportunity to portray their chosen person in a creative way.
