Fifth grade class wax museum brings history to life BY PATTI CARPENTER Amelia Erhardt, Annie Oakley, Alexander Hamil- ton, George Washington, Dolly Madison, Sacajawea, Susan B. Anthony and Em- ily Dickinson were some of the famous characters brought to life by Rocky Mountain Elementary School students at a sim- ulated wax museum per- formance that depicted in- fluential characters from American History. The wax museum was held on Friday, May 18 at RMES. In preparation for the event, students were asked to pick a person who lived from 1600s to the present day, who influenced the history of the nation. They also designed the costumes they wore during the pre- sentation and researched the character thoroughly before writing a speech for the project. Each student memo- rized and recited their speech about their charac- ter from history for those visiting the wax museum. Students dressed as their chosen character and pre- tended to be a wax figure. Those touring the museum pressed a special button taped to the floor, which brought the character to life. The student play- ing the role of the charac- ter would then speak, as if they were the character re- citing a history of their life. The public and fel- low students from the el- ementary school were in- vited to share the history lesson with the fifth grade students. The students also presented an artistic sketch of their character.
