        Wax Museum

        Fifth grade students from Washington Elementary School take on the life of historical figures, quite literally, in this episode of NJEA’s Classroom Close-up! As part of the Wax Museum project, students choose a historical figure, conduct research, write a biographical report, and create posters and poems about their chosen person. Finally, on wax museum day, students dress up as wax depictions of their figures, who come to life with a push of a “button” located on their bodies! This project integrates social studies, reading, and language arts and is many students’ first exposure to public speaking.
