Dear Third Grade Families,
Our first project of the year is here! In Science we will be studying the Solar System and the students will choose a planet to research. We will be doing the majority of the work in class. However, work that is not finished in class will need to be completed at home in order to be turned in by September 29.
Choose a planet. _________________________________________________
Students will use the included preliminary research notes to help guide their research. They will transfer their information to the Final Report Template using complete sentences, correct spelling, and grammar. I have also included the Editor’s Checklist.
The Final Report Template is due Friday, September 29, 2016
(The Final Report Template)
4. The students will also need to have a visual aid to accompany their report. This can be a 3D model, informational poster, Prezi, etc,. The students will be presenting their report in class and the visual aid will become part of a classroom museum. Presentations will begin September 29, 2016. Anyone who wishes to bring in their project early may do so.

You will be learning about one state through your research. You will plan and create a parade float that will inform other students about your special state.
Students will research and complete the A-Z State Float Notes packet about their assigned state. The packet includes information on geography, famous people, state symbols, government, sports, etc. The packet should be neatly written and include color when possible. We will do most of the research at school, but may also be completed at home.
You will design and create a parade float for your state at home. Your State Float should be made out of a shoe box or other small box. Parade floats are beautiful and colorful, so be creative! Use tissue paper, construction paper, etc to cover all sides of your box. Models, pictures or figures can be added to add interest and creativity. Put your float together carefully.
Your float must include:
State name in neat lettering
State Symbols (tree, bird, etc)
Date of Statehood
Outline of states shape
Chose at least 3 other items from you’re A-Z State Float Notes to be represented on your float.
Rubrics for both parts of this project are included below. Use your rubric to make sure that your project is complete...and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!
Projects are due Thursday, May 25, 2017

Famous Tennessean Wax Mueseum
Sullins Academy will be transformed into a wax museum. Students from third and fourth grade will research a famous person who has had an impact on Tennessee or Virginia history and portray that person as a “wax figure” in our wax museum.
There are 6 parts to this project:
Choose the Person
5 Paragraph Essay on the Person
Backdrop on Large Display Board
Costume and Props
“Be the Person”
Research Page & 5 Paragraph Essay
The Research Page will help guide the research for the essay. The essay should contain an introduction and conclusion with the following information:
Background-Where he or she was born, childhood, family, school, etc.
Accomplishments/Reason for Fame-personal, professional, contributions to state
3 Interesting Facts-anything interesting or unique
The backdrop will represent a setting or a place where the person would have been. The backdrop will be behind the student as part of his or her display. For example, a baseball player might have a baseball stadium behind him. A president might stand in front of the White House. The backdrop should be neat, colorful, and detailed. Be sure to include your famous person’s name on the backdrop so that it is clearly visible.
Costume and Props
The costume for the wax museum can be very specific, like a baseball uniform, or something more general like a suit and tie. Use your imagination and have fun with it!
The props can be anything that the person may have used. Examples are, tools, sports equipment, microphones, etc. You can hold the props or place them near you. The idea is to create a complete scene.
“Be the Person”
The student will pretend to be a wax figure of the famous person. They can pick a standing pose or a sitting pose. The pose will portray the famous person and they will “come alive” for each group that visits his or her display. For example, an author might be sitting at a desk holding a pen and paper. A baseball player may be posed as if they are up to bat. They will speak to each visitor as though they are the famous person then return back to a wax figure as if by magic.
