Alpharetta Elementary students put focus on famous figures in history

Fourth and fifth graders at Alpharetta Elementary School hosted what they hope will be their first annual Living Wax Museum last week. Students chose an important historical figure that they learned about during the school year. Students were expected to research, write and memorize a one- to two-minute speech about that person. They also had to create a costume to display at the museum. Parents, teachers and students were invited to visit the museum to learn more about historical figures.
