Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
2. Have the children choose a person that they are most interested in. You can divide this up anyway you want to. There are plenty of people for each student to do or they can work in groups.
3. Allow the students time to research about their character. Make sure they use several different sources beside the internet.
4. Have them complete the worksheet about their character. Stress the essential questions of: (Dont be too concerned with dates but with ideas.)
a. How was this person like other revolutionaries?
b. How did this person impact the revolutions?
5. The students will then create a first person script about this person. If this person could tell their story what would they want people to know?
6. Now have them start working on their back drop. Use the bulletin board paper to make a simple setting for the student to stand in front of as they say their script. Teach a lesson on perspective in drawing and discuss how to make a 2 dimensional look 3 dimensional. (State Art Standard)
7. Then discuss appropriate costumes for the time period.
8. Spend time practicing the wax museum scripts; they will need to be memorized.
9. Have a dress rehearsal, where the kids watch each other and then have your special day.
