Fourth Grade Living Museum Brings Biographies to Life

Posted on: Feb 11, 2013

Fourth graders recently had the chance to dress up for the Living Museum, a culminating cross-curricular project where biographies come to life! The students choose a chapter book about an important individual that inspires or intrigues them. Each student reads their chapter book, chooses an alternative text featuring this individual, and also finds an internet site or multimedia source to finish up their note-taking and research portion of the project. The students then created a speech as if they were the individual that they studied, dresses up as this person, and “comes to life” during the Living Museum. From oral presentations, to informative posters lining the hallways, to entertaining silent films… the Living Museum has it all!
