Super Cool BHM Idea

See how these fourth graders are participating in an African American Wax Museum. Beth Newingham from Scholastic reports the following…"Using the information the students have collected on their famous African American figures, they write a speech in the first person that they will eventually read to an audience at the African American Wax Museum. In preparation for the opening of the wax museum, students try to memorize their speeches (although they do make note cards that they can use if they forget their lines). They also create posters with pictures of the African American they have chosen. Students are asked to dress up as their person and bring props or other things that will bring authenticity to their character."  (via Scholastic Community)

Be sure to scroll down and check out the pictures of these students in costume…super cool idea!
