Hunt Students Participated in Revolutionary War Wax Museum

Walking through the halls of Hunt Elementary during the Open House held Mar. 7, it was easy to spot fifth grade students. Fifth grade students participated in a Revolutionary War Wax Museum.

Students, donned in period garb, stood at their chosen station. When attendees pressed the “button” affixed to their hand, they poured forth their vast knowledge in wax museum fashion. Students would recite their speech in first person as many times as their button was pushed during their shift.

The assignment included researching major accomplishments of a personality in the Revolutionary War and preparing an oral recitation regarding their life and accomplishments or other significant activities.

Parents, siblings and classmates enjoyed participating in this interactive, educational and entertaining event.
