Sixth graders create their own wax museum

Sixth graders hosted their annual “wax museum” this morning, showcasing research projects on historical figures of their choosing. The project involved researching information in the library, writing a paper, and orally presenting and portraying the information. At the “wax museum,” students dressed up as their subject and gave a brief speech about the accomplishments and importance of their subject. Some of the historical figures that students chose were John F. Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Amelia Earhart, Hank Aaron, and Benjamin Franklin. The goal of the project is to teach research skills to the sixth graders.
