Twenty-five students in Beth Shelton’s third-grade class at Brownstown Elementary School recently dressed up to portray historical characters during the historical wax museum, “What a bunch of characters!”

For their social studies culminating activity for the school year, students read about a historical figure that made an impact during some part of American or world history. They presented a speech as their person during the event.

The students memorized the information, dressed up in some way and/or used props and appeared as frozen (like wax figurines) until their “push” button was hit. Visitors pressed the button to activate the students’ acting and dialogue.

In addition to their speeches, each student also created a trifold display board, which included a biography, a student-drawn portrait of their historical figure, a timeline, a word web and a compare/contrast diagram.

Other classes were invited to attend, along with parents, grandparents and other relatives.
