Claremont students learn about historical individuals

CLAREMORE —

Third and Fourth grade students at Claremont Elementary participated in the school’s first ever Living Wax Museum. 
The students portrayed historical figures who came to life with the “push of a button.”
Students were stationed in hallways around the school with their related history projects and posed like figures in a wax museum until someone “pushed the button.”
The exercise was created to teach students drama, research skills, speaking skills and about important people in history.
