Did you ever wish you could ask a famous person from history a question? Or listen to them talk about their life? Students, parents and area residents got to do just that last Friday, February 12, when Cedar View Elementary fourth graders presented their “Living Wax Museum” in the Cedar View gym.

According to fourth grade teacher Mrs. Poll, students are required to read a biography and write a research paper as part of the state’s fourth grade curriculum. The fourth grade teachers combine these two activities and end it with their “Living Wax Museum.” The 1-1/2 month process includes reading their biography, writing the report, creating a costume, and designing a display board of information about their character.

On Friday the students dressed up as their character, set up their display board, and prepared a short speech about their characters. Those interested in hearing the student talk about their character could walk up and push a button taped somewhere on the student or their display. Featured characters included Davy Crockett, Albert Einstein, George Washington, Leonardo DaVinci, Helen Keller, and many more.

    The kids worked very hard on this project and they did such a great job! I would love to see more coverage on events such as this one. It would be great if more pics could be squeezed in too.
