Dressed in costume to represent the individuals they studied during a nonfiction reading unit, Sylvan Avenue Elementary School fourth-grade students stood perfectly still during a living wax museum held at the school.

Several famous historical individuals came to life during Sylvan Avenue Elementary School's fourth-grade living wax museum event. The program, which is an annual tradition at the school, is a culminating event for the grade level’s nonfiction unit of study and incorporates various aspects of history.

To prepare for the event, the students selected historical figures of interest to them, read their biographies, and collected information on their lives and worldly contributions. The students then documented their findings on a research poster, which was put on display at the museum. For the event, the students dressed in costume to represent their chosen person and remained still, as if made of wax. Once a visitor tapped the student’s “activation button,” they came to life as their researched individual and delivered a short autobiographical speech.
