Roseboro was visited by some of the greatest minds and hearts in history. The third grade students of Roseboro Elementary presented a living wax museum for their parents and community members to enjoy.
Students dressed and gave a speech while portraying their figure. Museum members included Albert Einstein, Rosa Parks, Neil Armstrong, and Thurgood Marshall. Great artists of their time like Louis Armstrong, Joan Baez, and Marian Anderson were included. Inventors such as Thomas Edison, scientists such as Marie Curie, athletes such as Jesse Owens, and authors such as Rachel Carson were all present for the performance.
The students did an exquisite job of presenting their speeches and giving museum visitors important facts and anecdotes about their lives and achievements.
“This is my favorite thing we do at RES,” kindergarten teacher Felicia Bradshaw said.
“This was a great experience for the kids. They learned so much about historic figures in all walks of life,” Gina Cain, parent, said.
In the process, students researched many different careers that include the arts, not just athletics and academics.
