Historical figures came to life in the cafeteria at Dogwood Elementary School when Danielle Neri’s class held their fifth-grade class wax museum on May 22. 

During the last three months, the students did a biography study. Each student researched a historical figure of interest and created a research report, Google slideshow, poetry, and a portrait of their historical figure. 

As a culminating activity, the fifth-graders participated in a living wax museum. The students dressed like their character – with famous faces like Princess Diana, Walt Disney, Mozart and more – and once the visitors to the museum tapped them on the shoulder, their character came to life. 

Back in the classroom, invited guests had a chance to watch a video that was created using green screen technology. Each student was featured in the video playing the role of his or her historical figure.
