Kate Jackson
Overview:
Each year, fourth grade students at Lakewood Elementary School research people who have made a significant contribution to society. We dress up like those people and share what we learn about them in our wax museum exhibit. Other students, teachers, and parents come see what we've learned. As each guest approaches us, we share the biography of our famous person - just like you'd see in the real wax museums. It's a lot of work to prepare...and a lot of fun to share. We're glad we can share our wax museum exhibit with you.  In order to meet the Social Studies standard listed, the podcast viewed must have an Alabama connection.
