Art City Elementary fifth grade students held their annual wax museum on Wednesday March 6, 2019.  Fifth grade students dressed up as famous and important people or characters in America’s history.  Some of the characters from history included; George Lucas, Betsy Ross, Albert Einstein, Micheal Jordan, Elvis Presley, Jackie Robinson and Walt Disney, just to name a few.  The rest of the students in the school, as well as family, walked through the museum.  The students would press a button, listen to the famous person tell a little about themselves and help students learn about these famous people.   Art City has been doing the wax museum for over 19 years.  It gives students an opportunity to learn how to do a research paper, read biographies and learn about people in America’s history.  Students are expected to research and write a bibliography.  They learn perseverance and patience in researching their character in history.  Students have fun dressing up, and teachers enjoy seeing the efforts put into the characters.
