Oakwood students host living history wax museum

Posted: Updated:
CHICKAMAUGA, GA (WRCB) -

Fourth grade students at Oakwood Christian Academy in Chickamauga presented their version of a wax museum on Friday. The students chose a historical person and researched how the person impacted others, nations, or the world.  The students prepared and delivered a speech so they could "become" this person at the museum.  As people came to their station and pressed the indicated button, the student presented their speech.  This is a unique way for students to learn history outside the standard classroom environment.

The museum included personalities including Presidents, First Ladies, astronauts, Rosa Parks, Babe Ruth, Adolf Hitler, and many others.

Over the years, this history project has been a great way for all students and adults to learn more about historical/influential people and how they, too, can be an influence to future generations.  Many of the school's senior high students can still quote the speech from their 4th grade wax museum experience.
