West End fifth graders put a new spin on biography reports when they presented a living wax museum of famous athletes. The students studied famous sports figures, compiling reports about their lives and accomplishments.
On June 2, participants turned the second floor of their school into a living wax museum. They dressed as the person they had researched, and stood as still as mannequins in front of colorful handcrafted backdrops until visitors pushed their buttons. Then they came to life, reciting facts about the famous athletes they were portraying.
