Students in fifth through eighth grade at St. Stephen School in New Boston recently completed a project where they created a living wax museum.
They worked for over two months to complete a research paper, create a backdrop/poster, prepare a speech, and dress up as a person who had an impact on society.
The lives of saints, artists, scientists, presidents, writers, monarchs, and athletes were all brought to life by the students.
Students memorized and recited a two to three minute biographical speech on the highlights of their character’s life.
Other grades, as well as many school families, were able to visit the wax museum and hear about all the fascinating people who have shaped history.
“This is one of my favorite projects that the students work on. They put in so much effort, and truly do an amazing job with bringing their historical character to life,” said Rachel Hutcherson, middle school teacher at St. Stephen school.
