Wax Museum at Willard
By Anabelle Brown, 4th grade, willard school

Today I will tell you about my school Willard’s fourth grade Wax Museum. This is when kids pick out an important person, for example I was Mary Jackson. Mary Jackson was the first African American female engineer at NASA. We did lots of research on computers and we read books. We wrote biographies, made posters, found costumes, wrote speeches and then memorized them.

On the night of Wax Museum, we stood on chairs and posed and people came over and pushed fake buttons taped to our chairs. When they pushed our button we would come alive and say our speech.

I interviewed a friend on Wax Museum.
