Living Museum Highlights Research Skills

STudent dressed as Jackie Kennedy Student dressed as Abe Lincoln Famous folks from the past came alive at the second-grade living museum at William Kaegebein Elementary as students honed traditional and online research skills.

They selected a historical figure to research using the PebbleGo online research database, books, and a graphic organizer. Using their data, they created a poster about their person using the Pic Collage app.

They memorized important facts and quotes from their person. They created a costume and dressed up as their person for the living museum where they stood still in a pose until they were tapped by a museum visitor. They then "came to life" and recited a fact or quote.
