Living Museum in Second Grade!

Amelia Earhart, Abraham Lincoln, Malala Yousafzai, and Steven Spielberg — what could all these historical greats in one room mean? It’s time for the second-grade Living Museum!

This cross-curricular project is a perennial favorite, with students researching a historical figure using resources from the library, creating a portrait in art class, and developing a timeline of the person's life and accomplishments on the media center's iMacs. The best part? Going all out to dress the part and presenting a "living museum" to their teachers, parents, and peers to enjoy!
