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.
This was truly an awe-inspiring event! I am beyond proud of all the hard work they put into not only researching for their projects, but reciting what they learned in front of a live audience. Everyone did such an amazing job!!
