Mark your calendars for the annual Fourth Grade Wax Museum on Friday, February 9, from 8:30-9:25 a.m. in the Providence Gym.

Over the next few weeks, fourth grade students will be busy working on a biography research project on a famous historical figure. Each student researches a different person, writes a biography report, and “becomes” the person in a living wax museum. The culminating part of this project is an amazing wax museum where students dress up as the people they have learned about and stand still, like wax figures, until someone walks up to them and presses their buttons. When the individual student’s button is pushed, that historical figure will come “alive”  as the student recites a speech about the character.
