Some of our students decided to create websites for their Living Museum/History Day projects! Keep checking back to see their progress!
Today we started preparing for our annual Living Museum and we’re so excited! Each child in the class was assigned a famous person in history that they will research over the next few weeks. Each of these people has taken a stand for or against something in history! The students will pretend to be statues, which will come to life when a button is pushed. It is always a lot of fun! I am planning on having the museum on Friday, January 27 in the afternoon and we would love for you to attend (I will let you know a time when it gets closer)! The students will also present their exhibit boards at the History Fair on Thursday, February 2nd in the evening. I would love to have all the students there to show off their work if possible. They will be judged this year too, which is very exciting!!
Over the next few weeks the students will finish researching their person and create speeches and displays about them. Most of the work will be done in class, but there is one thing that your child will need to complete at home. They will need a costume. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it should include something distinguishing. For example, a person from Hawaii might wear a lei and a flowered shirt, or an astronomer might wear a lab coat and have a makeshift telescope. I’m not looking for fancy or expensive, just something to give us an idea of the person. There are also some pictures from past years below that might help give you some ideas. If you need help coming up with something, let me know and we can try to figure it out together
