MGMS fifth graders bring history to life with a wax museum

Aspen Miller as Anne Frank.

Fifth graders at Mountain Green Middle School recently learned about prominent people by studying their lives through reading their biographies. Students brought those individuals to life through a living “wax museum.”

Students donned attire to resemble the historical figure they read about.  In addition, they presented facts in a memorized speech presented to other students in the school who were invited to attend the wax museum with parents attending that evening. 

Pennies were dropped in a cup next to the student to activate their speech with those proceeds going to buy biographies for the library.
