Sistersville Elementary School Presents Wax Museum
Sistersville Elementary School recently hosted a wax museum, and students dressed up as famous individuals throughout modern American History. Each child sat in a solemn pose, with a print-out of a button sitting beside he or she; and visitors could step on the button, bringing the characters to life. The students decorated their own backgrounds without the help of parents, which provided that authentic fifth grade appearance. The students also had their speeches written down on note cards, in case they were needed – which they were not very often. The whole presentation was wonderfully presented by the students, and it was very educational as well as entertaining.
