This women's history activity is a fun addition to a standard research report about men and women who played a role in the woman suffrage movement. Once students have learned a fair amount about their assigned people, they hold a presentation day in which they each dress up like their person and stand still, as if they are wax figures in a museum. When a visitor pushes a paper button, the figures “come to life” and present short, informative presentations in the persona of the person they researched. A student-illustrated presentation board is created ahead of time and used in the presentation.
