Lee Road Elementary School third graders in Melanie Anderson's and Tina Vrachnas' classes recently hosted their 2019 Third Grade Wax Museum as a culmination of their biography project. Family members were invited to the anticipated event where students dressed as a famous individual from history and educated others about what they learned about their person. The interdisciplinary project was completed entirely in school.

Leading up to the Wax Museum, the third graders utilized various books, internet resources, videos and magazines to explore the life of their person. They took notes and learned how to gather and synthesize information. With the help of their teachers, students created 10 interesting facts using Microsoft Word, typed a poem, brainstormed a concept web using the program Inspiration, inferred character traits and wrote the traits in Word Art. The classes enhanced their vocabulary skills as they worked on these character traits and wrote a speech from the point of view of their person of study.

Family members walked around the Lee Road gymnasium where students were stationed with boards of information about their famous individual and dressed the part. With a tap on the shoulder, the student would transform into their person and educate their guest with facts and other information that they learned. Many of the students even memorized their speeches.

"Our third graders have had a phenomenal year of growth and development and this project is a perfect culmination to their hard work," Anderson shared with family members before the event. "Mrs. Vrachnas and I would like to thank our Computer TA, Mrs. Zabatta, for all of her assistance with this project. The Third Grade Wax Museum has become a Lee Road tradition that parents and students look forward to each year."
