History Comes Alive

Minnesauke Elementary School students in Kara Gorski's fourth-grade class brought history out of the textbooks during this year’s annual Revolutionary Wax Museum project.

Leading up to the event, the students researched a historical figure and drafted biographies on their lives. During the museum, the students stood still – as if set in wax – until a visitor tapped on their desk to make them come to life. Once animated, the students spoke about the figure that they embodied.
