PHOTO GALLERY: Living wax museum at Winsted Elementary

WINSTED, MN – Click here to see third-graders at Winsted Elementary portraying Oprah Winfrey, Rosa Parks, Abraham Lincoln, and other historical figures during a living wax museum Friday, June 1.

The wax museum gave students an introduction to finding data and writing/speaking a report. To prepare, each student researched a famous person, then created a report and a display. When the museum opened, costumed third-graders waited quietly for visitors to press a “button” near their displays. At that time, the students would “come alive” by reciting a 30- to 60-second speech about their famous person’s impact on society.

Select photos will be printed in the Friday, June 8 edition of the Herald Journal.
