Today Maisie and her 3rd grade classmates did a living history museum and each student presented as a famous person from history, using the books in the Who Was book series. Last Thursday each child picked a book and Maisie chose to read and learn about Anne Frank. Maisie read the book Who Was Anne Frank, she also watched Masterpiece Theater: The Diary of Anne Frank (a good version for the younger set as it doesn’t get too graphic though it tells the story up until they were discovered in the Secret Annex), this past Tuesday we visited the local Anne Frank in the World Exhibit and last May when we were in Amsterdam, we toured The Anne Frank House, visiting the Secret Annex.
Maisie really got into her project and has had endless questions about Anne Frank and wants to learn even more about her. For their project today, the children had to read their book, make a poster and then dress up & present as their person.
The children did one presentation for just their teacher and classmates (the one I videoed) and then they opened up the “museum” and using just their posters, did a shorter presentation for the children in other grades as they passed through. The video is a long one but IMHO, totally worth watching to the end as I think my girl did an A-Maisie-ing job! Enjoy!
One of Eammon’s favorite meals is Chicken Tikka Masala and I found a wonderful recipe that is made super easily in the slow cooker. The only problem with this recipe is that the smell of it cooking all day long drove us crazy anticipating the meal. Check this one out by clicking on the link or the picture to be taken to Cook Lisa Cook and the recipe.
