myla: wax museum

myla has adjusted to junior high so well here in boston. i don’t get to visit the schools as often as i did in utah. boo. however, for one of myla’s first projects in social studies they invited the parents to a “wax museum” to show us what they learned about the roman empire. she was a typical roman woman:

each student had to dress like their part, and had a “button” for us to push. They had to stand like statues until the button was pushed, then they would come alive. At this time, they would recite what they had memorized about their parts. it was very clever, and cute.
