3rd Graders Personify Historical Figures at Wax Museum

Third grade social studies students performed a "Wax Museum" for parents, faculty, staff and peers in the Lower School Commons, May 26. The live performance, featuring individual oral presentations, was a culmination of a yearlong cultural identity study of how different groups came to America and contributed to the fabric of our nation. Each student selected a person of significance to research and then crafted a speech highlighting that character's lifetime achievements. Many dressed as their character or carried props to help the audience identify them. For a photo gallery of the event.
