PBL in Action - Historical Wax Museum
CRE follows a unique project based learning style of education. PBL allows students to integrate knowledge with hands on exploration, design and presentation. In their latest PBL project, our third graders (and a few second graders) brought history to life in their historical wax museum. Students selected a historical figure they wished to learn more about, created a presentation fact board, and dressed themselves as their chosen figure. The classrooms were staged as a museum and the students were wax figures; only coming to life when someone pushed their "play button" and listened to their script of historical facts and information. Visitors to the museum were able to wander around to view the different wax figures, from pilgrims and Leonardo DaVinci, to Dr. Seuss and John Lennon.
