To celebrate Black History Month, second grade students hosted a living wax museum. The students spent a month researching about a famous historical African-American figure to create a poster with the information they learned. On the day of the museum, students dressed up as their figure and pretended to be the real-life wax figure! Parents and classes were able to visit the the museum and interact with the “wax figure” by pressing a red button on the students’ hands. When the red button was pressed, students had to a recite a short summary about the life and achievement of their historical African-American figures.
Below is a small snapshot of how the event took place:
I am beyond proud of all of them! They all did a wonderful job and truly earned those Popsicles after standing up for 2 hours!
