Fifth-graders at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School transformed their gymnasium into an interactive experience during a wax museum on Jan. 11.

As a culminating activity to their literacy lesson on biographies, the fifth-graders researched and studied a person who has had a major impact on history and portrayed that person as a “wax” figure. Dressing the part, students played the role of their person.

Wax museum visitors, which included the third- and fourth-grade classes, walked around, looking at the famous people and pushed the button on their hand to hear interesting facts about their life and why they are important to history.
