3rd Grade Wax Museum

On Tuesday, May 23rd, our third grade hosted their annual Wax Museum. Over the last few months, third grade students have been working hard to choose a famous person they were excited to learn about and did plenty of research on how they contributed to society. After their research, they took on their selected persons personality and looks and presented to the rest of our Clarendon bees. This project incorporated history, reading, writing, and public speaking all into one project. Great job to our third grade students and the third grade teachers!
