4/20/18 – John F. Kennedy, Neil Armstrong, Rosa Parks and Amelia Earhart were some of the historical figures spotted in the halls of Southwest Elementary on Thursday, April 19.  These leaders of democracy, innovation and civil rights were brought to life by the school’s fourth-grade students during the grade level’s annual wax museum project.

The wax museum project mixed language arts with history to create a fun project that students were excited to work on. For the project, students had to select and research an important historical figure. After completing their research, each student prepared a narrative on their historical figure, memorized it and then recited their narrative for visitors.
