On November 20th, 2014, the freshmen students presented a live wax museum in the worship center lobby. In English class, each student chose a career that they would consider pursuing and completed research including interviews, data research and college research. To share and demonstrate what they learned through their research, students created a short speech about their career with an elementary audience in mind. On Thursday, the 20th, they presented their speeches wearing the uniform of their chosen career.
Two Blackhawk second grade classes from the North campus visited the museum. When they entered the worship center lobby, all of the career people were frozen in place until one of the second graders came by to press their button. The freshmen did an excellent job of remaining in character and many gave their speeches over 20 times! This year’s wax museum was held during sixth period with 35 participants and during 8th period with 37 participants. It was definitely a success, with many high school classes coming to the exhibit in addition to the elementary.
