3rd Grade Wax Museum 6.4.19
Our 3rd Grade Wax Museum is a wonderful Jacob Wismer tradition that students look forward to when they enter third grade. After choosing a famous person to research, students write their biographies and then create speeches about them in first person. The unit culminates in a final Wax Museum presentation where they portray their person as a wax figure that "comes alive" when a visitor approaches and steps on their "button." The student recites, often by memory, the speech they've prepared. Below are two video examples as well as several photographs from our June 4th Wax Museum. Enjoy!
