Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Students at Baldwin Elementary got a first hand history lesson from historical figures Tuesday.

Mrs. Gill’s 5th grade class presented their ‘Biography Wax Museum’, students researched famous historical figures such as Cleopatra, Dr. Suess, the Wright Brothers, and Albert Einstein– then put together costumes and gave first-person presentations about their lives.

“I’m doing Aly Raisman,” said 5th grader Savannah Stupavsky, “which is an Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics, she’s won 3 gold medals, I just really look up to her.”

Mrs. Gill said it’s a valuable way for students to work on their presentation skills while teaching their peers about history.
