Description of how and where the wax museum will be presented, including how it
successfully integrates two visual arts components (art, music, dance, drama).
Since this is a major project, I will allow an allotted amount of time for research, rough
drafts, presentation preparation and performance. At the start of the project, I will
communicate with parents whether it is an email, letter or text message that a major
project is taking place and that parents are welcomed (and encouraged) to help out.
Parents will receive the full outline and requirements for the project so they can help their
child as best they can. This will also include the time and date of the presentations which
will take place during the day in the gymnasium. I will also notify the teachers of
younger grade levels so they can have their students participate in the fun as well.
