wax museum.

I forgot to post about this back at the end of school. 
Our 4th and 5th graders worked super hard on this big project... a wax museum. 
They each had to choose a famous person, who had some kind of positive impact on people. They researched them, wrote a report about them, created a backdrop and gathered costumes and props, then memorized their speeches for the big day. 

Sophie won a pretty intense game of rock, paper, scissors and got to do Princess Diana. 

Her entire costume came from Grandma's collection of dress up clothes. Thank you, Grandma! =)

Parents, grandparents and friends were invited and K, 1, 2 and 3 all took our classes down at different times. They got to wander around and listen to the different speeches. (My mom and dad happened to be keeping Gretchen that day, so she got to come, too!)

See the red button on his hand? When you push it, they "wake up" and start to talk.

This was one of my favorites... Jesus! =)
{Don't try and tell me that Jesus isn't in public schools. He is. Maybe not as obviously as Christian schools, but His presence is there and He is influencing hearts and lives. Awesome to see.}

Just one more reason to love having my kids at my school. There is no way I would be able to attend something like this if they were at a different school. 

You did a great job, Sophie!
I was so proud of you!

Thanks for sharing these. I didn't get to go to the Wax Museum that day due to having a sub in the morning. I always enjoy going. Sophie looks beautiful! I LOVED Princess Diana!
