Pigeon River Holds Annual Wax Museum

On Friday, March 5, parents, relatives, friends, and Pigeon River Elementary School staff were invited to attend the school's annual Wax Museum, which ran from 12:30-1:00 p.m.

In the weeks leading up to the wax museum, third grade students studied biographies of famous people and practices so they could ‘become the person' they researched. Some of the famous people chosen this year were David Beckham, Helen Keller, Anne Frank, Henry Ford, LeBron James, Betsy Ross, Sasha Cohen, and Laura Ingals Wilder.

During the project, students learned to summarize and determine main ideas while reading about their famous person. They also completed a chronological timeline of their person and memorized the information so they could present the important aspects of their character.

During the wax museum, students dressed up as their famous person and shared important facts about that person's life. When an adult pushed a colored button worn by each student, the student gave his/her oral presentation. The presentations were approximately 7-10 sentences long and each child presented his/her information as many times as his/her button was pushed.
