Living Portrait Museum

Logan's 5th grade class has been preparing to present a living portrait museum. This project required them to prepare a biography paper on an influential American. They learned the research and writing process and then had to write a speech that they were to memorize. The museum portion required them to dress up as their chosen character from history and make a "frame" from which they would give their speech. Logan did a great job! He was proud of himself for memorizing such a long speech and we were proud of him too! All of the students in his class participated in this project and they lined walls of the gym and gave their speeches as people walked up to them. It was great to see all of the costumes and children! Oh, and his influential American was William Penn!
