She did a great job on her report and really enjoyed using the computer for research and then typing up her paper. After their reports are turned in the kids all portray their Famous Dead American in the Wax Museum. David snuck out during the Pinewood Derby and got to see the Museum. I stayed at the Pinewood Derby and got to tour the Museum the next morning. My parents were able to arrange their schedules to make it in the morning. Nephi even enjoyed it. It was amazing how 68 5th graders could hold so still and be so quiet.
The local news station even came! Here is the link: http://videos.apnicommunity.com/Video,Item,718520550.html.
Faith was so excited to be on TV!! The kids got to watch the video during school and thought it was very cool!
Faith made her own backdrop - she drew it and colored it in. I did go over her outline with a marker but she did the rest. I made her skirt and lab coat. It was fun for me and she sure looked great. We put her hair in a bun - which she thought was kinda fun, but had too many bobbie pins. It was a great project and the kids learned a lot.
