"Long Long Ago, In A Land Far Away"

Jake just had a big project at school. Every year the 3rd graders create a "Wax Museum". Each of the kids study and learn about a famous person. The kids get to choose who they want to learn about. We get biography's from the library and learn all we can.
Then they take all that information and pack it into an at least 1 minute schpeal to be presented in first person, in costume. Props heavily suggested.
Who did Jake choose? Why GEORGE LUCAS of course!
The parents lined up and waited for the museum to open. Each kid stood in place with a push button pinned to their shirt. When pushed the kids would then recite their report to the pusher. FUN! They would give the report over and over through out the day.
Let's push Jake's button....
(listen carefully for the "hook" in the beginning and the "great conclusion")

"George Lucas" posing with Jango Fett...or is that Bobo Fett?!

"Tony Hawk" in true Wax form waiting for the next person to push his button.

"Benjamin Franklin"

"Albert Einstein"

That is a genious idea! I wish I could have been a wax figure as a kid. He did a great job!
