Living Wax Museum

Sojo's class has been studying biographies and world changers. She has always been a fan of bios, but this time around, they had a choose a person to study closely and "be" during their living wax museum. Sojo chose Sadako Sasaki, a girl who lived through the Atom bomb and then died later of leukemia. Sadako tried to make 1000 paper cranes as this was a Japanese custom that would allow your wish to come true. The Peace Park in Hiroshima has a statue of her with her paper cranes. The kids had a speech ready and when they finished, they froze as if they were statues. It was sweet and fabulous. She is loving her third grade year, and we love seeing her share her writing and reading so much.

What a fantastic teacher she must have with all the progressive topics to learn about. It sure seems to be at a higher level than I ever remember for myself or you at that age. Again, sure wish we had been there to see this.
