Genet Elementary School students played the parts of historical and contemporary figures such as Muhammad Ali, Paul Revere and Alex Morgan at the annual 4th Grade Interactive Wax Museum in the school gym last week. Students, wearing costumes and standing in front of poster presentations, described who they were and their significance to classmates, teachers and families.
“This year’s Grade 4 Wax Museum was an exciting representation of many important figures, both from the past and present day,” said Genet Principal Ana Yeomans. “Students shared remarkable details about the lives and accomplishments of their chosen people. The school community and many family visitors enjoyed their trip to the Wax Museum and learned a great deal in the process!”
Nearly 70 students participated in the project, which was coordinated by 4th grade teachers Alyssa Fodera, Daniel Scher and Jenna Turnbull.
“Our annual wax museum has been a great tool to help students learn about researching, biographies, taking notes and writing a multi-paragraph paper,” Mrs. Turnbull said. “It’s also given us the opportunity to work on public speaking in a meaningful manner.”
