Living history - Bell Elementary “Wax Museum” comes to life

    Bell Wax Museum

    Anne Hutchinson, George Washington, Pocahontas and Thomas Paine were all on hand at Alexander Graham Bell Elementary on June 11 as students hosted their annual “Wax Museum” event. Students chose their favorite historical figure from early American history. Then they studied issues and causes connected to their figure and prepared a speech that captured the essence of the figure’s personality, life journey and achievements. Costumes and exhibits were also prepared by students to replicate the look and feel of the era.

    During the event, students stood by their exhibit as other students and parents walked through the museum to watch the wax figures come to life. They went into character when attendees pressed a button at their exhibit to activate them.
