On Friday, June 17, students in Mrs. DeMagistris’ fifth grade Social Studies class created a Living Wax Museum! The fifth graders were responsible for selecting a historical figure or famous person to research as part of their end of year biography project. After completing their research the students were encouraged to organize notes in chronological order and use relevant information based on what the figure is most well known for.

For the final project presentation the students became a “wax figure” of the historical figure or famous person they researched. Classmates, students from other grade levels and teachers then walked around the classroom “museum” pressing the “wax figure’s” buzzers. After pressing the buzzer the student or staff member would listen to and learn from the “wax figure”.  

Great job fifth grade!
