Southwest Elementary fourth grade students recently brought history to life during the grade level’s wax museum project. For the project, students had to select and research an important historical figure. After completing their research, each student had to prepare a narrative on their historical figure and memorize it. During the wax museum students dressed up as their historical figure and recited their narrative for visitors.

Hyde Bourne’s historical figure was Sir Francis Drake. “My favorite part about this project was being able to dress up, memorize these speeches and present them. I just thought it was really fun,” said Bourne.

The wax museum project mixes language arts with history to create a fun project that students get excited about. “The best thing about this project is that they know what the end product is, they have seen it before, and they take a lot of pride in what the do,” said Samuel Potts, Southwest Elementary fourth-grade teacher.
