Summit School’s third grade Living Wax Museum returned to the Summit Center on Feb. 17 and organizers said it was a joy to witness the students’ hard work in person again.
Summit’s Living Wax Museum is when students take part in a multi-step research project by first reading a biography about a famous person. They record important facts from their chosen biography book and other resources such as informational websites.
Students then transform their facts into a first-person presentation.
Lastly, students find artifacts or props that represent the facts they have researched to provide visual aids.
The project culminates as a living wax museum where students dress as their famous person and read their first-person presentation while using their artifacts as visual aids.
