Wilma Rudolph
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.

Soaring with Literary Elements and Devices
Overview:
In this lesson, students will observe literary elements and devices in a variety of chapter books. Students will be paired with a partner and allowed to choose one book to identify literary elements. Using digital cameras and a computer, students will find pictures of objects that are related to their book. Lastly, students will use their photos to create a reading display board and a podcast that will include each literary element, pictures, objects, and the actual book. Students will be required to present their display board and podcast to the class.
