Manhasset Third-Graders Host Annual Biography Wax Museum

Third-graders from Manhasset’s Shelter Rock Elementary School recently transformed into famous figures for their annual biography wax museum event. From historical figures to athletes, students dressed like the individual that they studied and invited family members to the school for a fun performance and “museum” tour.
The families gathered in the school’s auditorium as the third-graders sang inspirational songs while dressed like their famous figure. Following the performances, a slideshow of photos was projected on a screen in the auditorium. Each photo was of a student creatively posing and dressed like their individual of study.
Attendees were then invited to head to the third-grade hallway for the museum portion of the event. Each third-grade classroom featured a different category of famous figures – athletes, the arts, and historical figures and royalty.
The students wore red buttons and froze like wax figures in front of their biography projects. With the “press” of a button, each student came to life and shared interesting facts about their researched individual. Family members enjoyed walking around and learning from the young researchers. The event was a great way for students to practice their public speaking skills and to showcase all that they learned.
