Visitors to the Stanley Switlik cafeteria during the school’s Parent to Kid (PTK) night on Nov. 30 were treated to a walk through history, courtesy of a Living Wax Museum presented by the school’s fifth graders. Tasked with choosing a historical figure to present during the museum, students were responsible for research, note-taking and report writing in order to produce a poster and create an in-person costumed representation of their chosen individual.
“The living wax museum not only showcased the students’ dedication and hard work, but also served as a unique presentation with a deeper understanding of history and honing valuable academic skills,” said Switlik social media contact Kerri Worthington. “Kudos to the fifth-grade students for their outstanding achievements in bringing history to life.”
