Event Collage

On Tuesday, February 28th, Grant School hosted our annual Wax Museum.  The students posed as wax figures to portray all types of interesting people which included artists, actors, athletes, inventors, politicians, musicians, cultural leaders, and all kinds of trendsetters from all walks of life.

The wax figures come to life as the visitors approach them to talk about their “claim to fame” and other interesting parts of their life.  The students prepared for the Wax Museum by reading various informational texts and taking notes in a graphic organizer.  From their research, the students then chose what they would share with visitors, and practiced their “speeches” in school and at home. Students from Kindergarten to the 5th grade, as well as the parents and guardians of the 6th grade, enjoyed learning about all the people represented at the Wax Museum.  

The 6th graders who participated in this year’s wax museum expressed how excited they were to perform for the entire student body.  It was great to see the expressions on the visitors’ faces and the reactions by not only the visiting classes but also from the teachers and parents when first seeing the students dressed as the wax figures in full costume.  The 6th grade students remember attending the wax museum as young students and looked forward to this year’s event. We are so proud of the hard work and dedication the 6th grade students put into this project.
