Fifth grade students — led by their reading teacher, Grayson Drake — recently participated in a living wax museum. It was an assignment that was used as their alternative writing assessment in Virginia Studies.

The children randomly chose a famous Virginian out of a bucket. It was a four-week project that was worked on at home and at school. The children researched a paper, made a poster and could even dress up as the famous person.

Then, guests, staff and other grade levels were invited to come hear the children give the story of their famous Virginian during their living wax museum presentation.

The students did remarkable job with their research project, which was informative and entertaining.
