S & P Wax Museum at East Lake School

After researching, drafting, and publishing biographies of famous figures the students in Mrs. Polo's and Mrs. Sicignano's 5th grade classes held a "living wax museum." On Thursday, February 28th, students dressed as their biography subjects and presented a short script when a button was pressed making each figure "come to life." The students also created backdrops for each subject which they posed in front of. Staff members enjoyed walking through and learning about presidents, musicians, authors, aviators, politicians, artists, and magicians. The combination of technology, creativity, and writing inspired many blossoming new authors.
