Students dressed up as historic figures like Evis, Princess Diana and Einstein and helped educate their schoolmates by "coming to life" and sharing information about their lives
Who doesn't love transforming into someone else? Now add a little history and you've got yourself a perfect lesson for fifth-grade students at Orchard Hill Intermediate School. The students recently dressed up as well-known figures in history — like Elvis, Einstein and Princess Diana — to make a living wax museum. Students chose a biography to read. And, after reading and taking notes, the students wrote a first-person account of the person's life. On Nov. 16 and 19 the students posed as wax figures around the classroom. Family members and other classes visiting the museum pressed the "button" to make students "come to life" and present their first-person narrative.
