The Colman-Egan 3rd graders performed their Living History Wax Museum yesterday, April 12, 2017. What is a “Living Wax Museum”? A living wax museum is a fun, creative way to get students doing history instead of just reading about it. The idea for a living wax museum comes from wax museums around the world, which feature lifelike representations of famous people. Instead of wax, though, this museum is a collection of historical figures represented by students in 3rd grade who do research and dress up like the person they chose.
