Grade 5 Wax Museum - An Annual Affair

On June 7 and 8, the fifth grade wing of Trinity Catholic Academy was abuzz with activity.  The children in Mrs. Calogrias’s, Ms Mussari’s and Mrs. Ryan’s classes worked hard reading biographies about famous individuals.  After collecting important information about these individuals, the children created speeches to present at the Wax Museum.  Part of the project also included making puppets to resemble the person each child was representing.

 

On the days of the presentations, the children brought costumes to change into and props to display.  You could feel the excitement in the air when visitors arrived.  Fourth and sixth graders, along with teachers and parents, came to visit.  The parents were very impressed with their children’s presentations.
