Wax Museum

A couple of weeks ago our Fifth Graders held their annual wax museum.  It looked a little different this year.  The students were asked to pick a person who had an impact on America.  They read a biography about their person and took notes about what they found interesting.  The student wrote a speech and created a poster about their famous person.  On the day of our wax museum, students dressed up as their famous person and delivered their speech in front of their classes.  We were sad that we could not hold our real museum and present our speeches in front of the school and our parents.  However, these fifth graders stepped up and did an amazing job.  Their teachers are so proud of them!  Great job, fifth grade!
