The big 3rd grade project is due today - it's a "Living Wax Museum", which means that each child was supposed to choose a famous person from history, read a book about him/her, write a book report about him/her, and then give a presentation about him/her in the first person.

There are all kinds of grading criteria for the presentation, too.  It has to be between 1 and 2 minutes (you get points deducted for going over the time limit), you have to include 3 interesting facts about your person, if you dress up as the person, you get extra points, etc.

It turned out to be an extremely time-consuming and in-depth project and the husband and Fellan spent a lot of time together over the last week to get it all put together.  But, I think the result was great.  And Fellan learned a lot in the process.

So, the kids are giving their presentations this morning at school and the husband sent me a picture of Fellan as his historic person.

Meet Leonardo da Vinci:

My father was a notary and my mother was a peasant
I can't wait to hear how it goes!
