Students bring historical figures to life


Fifth-grade students at Peachtree City Elementary School recently participated in the annual Wax Museum, a fun presentation allows students from all grade levels to “meet” different historical figures.

Students research an important historical figure from their curriculum, draft and memorize an introduction speech, and then dress as their figure on the day of the presentation. Students and guests are able to mingle with the historical figures, learning interesting facts about their lives and their impact on society and culture.

Grant, Joe O’Brien as Neil Armstrong, Graham Eves as Ronald Reagan, Mason Miller as the Red Baron, and Kai Jensen as Martin Luther King, Jr.
