Last week, about 125 third graders at Ironwood Elementary School
participated in a “Wax Museum” history project.
On Friday, Feb. 20, students came dressed as their favorite
historical figures who contributed to the U.S. or the world.
Students dressed up as characters ranging from Davy Crockett to
female astronaut Ellen Ochoa.
Beside each motionless student lay a button. When pushed, the
student came to life with a 20- to 30-second presentation on the
historical figure they came dressed as. Beside them stood a
display, illustrating their character’s life.
