Missoula Students Pose as Wax Figures

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Fifth graders at Chief Charlo Elementary School posed as their favorite famous figures as part of a wax museum.

The students spent almost two months reading biographies, creating presentations and building displays for the school's annual showcase.

Students dressed up as anything from athletes to actors and politicians

Fifth-grade teacher Cari Fulbright said this project pushes students to get creative, while using their reading and writing skills.

Fulbright said, "They get to know not only their own figure that they're researching but they get to know the other seventy two kids and seventy two figures that everyone's researching, so the knowledge they're gaining is huge."

Younger students, parents and community members also stopped by to show their support for the fifth graders final project
