They’re just so life-like!

OES fifth-grader Elsa Clark was the spitting image of Sacagawea, the Shoshone Indian who served as guide and interpreter for explorers Lewis and Clark during their famous expedition across the western United States to the Pacific Ocean.
Oxford Elementary was transformed into a living wax museum last week as all the fifth-graders lined the hallways dressed as historical figures and modern famous folks.

But the students didn't just look the part, they also played the part as they told visitors about their lives, recounted their famous deeds and explained their place in history.

The project definitely brought these subjects to life for the students, more so than simply reading a biography or writing a dry report.
