One of our big projects in 2nd Grade is the Mock Museum. To begin, the each student picks a person of interest, and then reads a biography about that person to find facts. Along the way, the students answer guided questions, which help them create a speech. Then, the students paint a poster board that has a cut out for their face. During presentations for parents and for the school, the poster “comes to life” when their button is pushed! We learned about so many wonderful people: scientists and writers, athletes, actors/producers, artists and musicians, and many other important people in history.
