Living Museum Summative Assessment Instructions

Summative Assessment:

You are an explorer. Your explorer is displayed in a museum, but not just a regular, ordinary museum. A Living Museum!  When a visitor comes by, you come alive, introduce yourself so that visitors can learn more about you, your exploration, discovery, feelings, thoughts, daily life, etc.

  1. You will research an explorer.
  2. You will write a brief introduction answering basic questions: Who? What? Where? When? How?
  3. Based on what you have learned about your explorer, you will write between 4-6 powerful questions and answers that people can ask you when they visit the museum. One of them will be “Why did your explorer explore?” These questions will relate to the Central Idea: Exploration leads to discovery and develops new understandings.
  4. Create a recount describing your exploration (picture, journal, blog, map, sketching book, etc.)
  5. Prepare yourself to role play your explorer when you answer people’s questions.
  6. Put together your costume.

Here are a few examples of powerful questions: How did you feel before you left on your exploration?  What were the dangers or challenges you thought you would have to face? What was the most difficult thing you had to do while exploring? What did you bring in your big trunk? What was your most precious piece of equipment? What was your last meal before you left on your exploration? What did you crave while exploring? Who did you miss the most while you were gone? What makes you a good explorer? What do you think people will remember you for?
