Grade 7 students to present Scientist Living Wax Museum for first time on Monday, Nov. 20.

Seventh-graders to portray famous scientists for first-time project

 

Grade 7 science students are taking on the role of famous scientists throughout history in Watervliet Junior High School's first-ever Living Wax Museum on Monday, November 20 from 8:50-10:00 a.m. in the WJSHS
cafeteria.

A Living Wax Museum is similar to a real wax museum in that visitors have an opportunity to learn about a variety of famous people. In this case, the historical figures are portrayed by students who act as statues in the wax museum.

To prepare for the project, students chose a famous scientist, physicist or inventor to research. They then identified important facts about the individual to write a brief speech about the individual.

To present the museum, students will dress as the scientist they chose and share information about the persons life and accomplishments in the first person with visitors. Other students will act as a museum docent and share the life story in the third person.

Teachers encourage family and friends to visit this an interactive and informative event.

All of our students are putting a great deal of work into this project and I know that you will enjoy seeing your student and the rest of the 7th grade in action, said Ashleigh Fraley, grade 7 science teacher. We are excited to present this first ever living wax museum.
