Make Research Exciting and Memorable!

By Beth Newingham on March 22, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

These two exciting projects help make research come alive.

International Festival: My students do country research each year. In addition to a traditional report, we host an international festival as a culminating activity. The festival allows students to share what they have learned about the country through a performance, fashion show, and taste-fest.

African-American Wax Museum: Our 4th grade students do research on a notable African American during Black History Month. To make their research more purposeful, they do a presentation at the annual Hill School 4th Grade African-American Wax Museum. All classes take turns visiting the museum to listen as the wax figures come alive and talk about their lives and achievements.
