Details: Students should select a historical or current day black person to research. Students should come dressed to school on Feb 28 as that person. The museum will be open between 8:15-9:15 a.m.. Parents are invited to come and tour the museum. Please send clothes for your child to change into after the museum.
Students in Grades 2-5 will be part of the living museum. Students can choose to act out a short scene from the person’s life or present a short bio on the figure’s role in shaping history. The short scene and bio recitation should be 30 seconds or fewer. At the end of the scene or bio, the student should state why they selected that person. All students should prepare a sign with the person’s name that can be displayed in front of the student.
Students in Grades K-1, can participate in the living museum, or they can do the wax museum. In the wax museum, students will stand silently. Students participating in the wax museum should prepare a sign with the person’s name and some details about why they selected that person.
The class with the most number of participants will get a Popcorn and Pajamas Party! Ribbons will also be awarded to those participating.
