5th Grade Holds Wax Museum

Submitted by krista.openshaw on Wed, 12/19/2018 - 16:55

Earlier in December, the 5th grade participated in the first Wax Museum held at Goshen School.  Each student chose a famous American to research and write a speech about.  Then, on December 5th, they dressed in a costume representing their famous American and we held a wax museum for parents and students to attend.  It was so much fun to see the different people that the students were interested in learning about, and what interesting information that the students found out about their person.  We are looking forward to seeing what next year's fifth graders do!
