Conversations with Presidents

WaxMuseum1Fourth graders researched a United States President and brought them back to life. The students' focus was on that particular president's history before, during, and after his presidency. After their written and oral classroom presentations, students gathered together in groups of 2-3. From there they discussed what their president would like to be remembered for in history. The students then came up with dialogue between the presidents about these accomplishments. Students created a museum exhibit with artifacts and pictures about their presidents. They dressed as their president or wife and transformed into wax figures in the museum exhibits. With a push of a button the wax figures became animated and had a conversation with the other presidents in their exhibit. This project allowed students to get to know our presidents on a more human level and not just a research project. For more photos click here.
