This Wednesday we had the pleasure of listening to many different accounts of Massachusetts famous people. Many of these people grew up here in Massachusetts . A few of them were transplants and they came to call Massachusetts their home. The students spent 6 weeks researching and making presentation boards, designing a costume and writing a speech in the voice of their person. The culmination for this project was a wax-like museum where families and friends were invited to learn about these people from the children. This format of presentation really showcases the  students learning and they love coming in to school "in character" .
