The highest form of flattery

Franklin Borough School’s third-grade wax museum gave students a chance to embody a famous person they had studied. Guided by their teachers, Diane Veldran, Karen Borek, Alison Hendershot and Jackie VanHassel, third-graders researched, wrote about and ultimately posed as a variety of historical figures. As visitors toured the Wax Museum, the students, dressed as the person they’d studied, presented speeches about their lives. During the afternoon, visitors could see life-size portraits created by the students. Afterward, they had a chance to reflect on what they had learned in the process of applying language arts skills to social studies content.
