Wax Museum in Grade 4

Wax Museum in Grade 4

On Friday, June 5th the Fourth Grade at St. John the Baptist School put on a living wax museum. The wax museum was the final project of their month long research on a famous person. Each child read a biography and researched on the internet and in the encyclopedia on a famous person. They then wrote timelines, reports, poems, and speeches on the person their chosen person. The final step was to dress up as the famous person and give a speech as if they were that person.

The Gymnasium was transformed into a living wax museum. There were no longer fourth graders in the building, but famous people such as Neil Armstrong, Henry Ford, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and many more. Each living wax figure had a red “button” on the floor in front of them. In order for each person to come “alive,” a person had to step on the red button. Then the figures would stand and tell the audience about themselves. When they were finished the figures would sit down again and stay still until the next person came along and pressed the red “button.”
