Third graders at Sevastopol Elementary got to step into somebody else’s shoes for a day as it hosted its living wax museum. Students picked historical figures to research before creating a poster, writing a report, and becoming that person for their presentation. Lyvia Duessler chose Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai because of the inspiration she gives girls.
Savanna Kiehnau used her love for baseball and softball to learn more about Kathryn Johnston, the first girl to play Little League. The 81-year-old Johnston even connected with Kiehnau to help make her presentation more real.
Nearly 60 third graders participated in the annual event. You can see Duessler and Kiehnau’s presentation online with this story.
