The "All About Me" Box that each student researched and built included 5 to 7 items that were important or significant to their person of interest.

We hear that Ms. Brendel’s fourth-grade class at Maplewood held a "Wax Museum" for their parents and administrators last week.  Each student chose a famous person for a biography report. Students enjoyed researching and compiling their final report about the person they chose. Each student was also responsible for creating an "All About Me" Box. This included 5 to 7 items that were important or significant to their person of interest. The students also dressed up as their famous person and presented a speech during the wax museum. The class did a wonderful job and it was a great learning experience for all.
