AT HOME PROJECT INFORMATION

Dear 2nd Grade Families,

 

We are excited to start Wax Museum Biography Projects!

 

PART ONE: Champions will be given time in class to read, research, and write a biography (an account of a notable figure´s life, written by someone else) on one chosen historical figure.  

 

We recommend talking about these common characteristics of biographies at home with your champion relating to the figure of his/her choice:
  • Birth and Death
  • Background or Childhood
  • Challenges or Struggles
  • Achievements
  • Influential People
  • Timeline of Events

 

PART TWO: Champions will dress up as the person and present a short essay in character during a Wax Museum families will be invited to attend on May 4 (more details about PART TWO coming Friday April 13).

 

PLEASE return the form below by Monday, April 9

 

Make sure to locate a biography based on these choices & be prepared to create a costume (reach out to your collegiate leader if you need help; we have SOME student-friendly biographies at school).
