A fun and learning experience was had by all when the fifth grade participated in a wax museum project last week at Mountain Green Elementary School. Every fifth-grader was required to read a biography and memorize a few fun facts about the person they chose to read about.  Then the fun began.  
They invited the whole school and parents to come see a wax museum.  As scads of people funneled through the museum, the fifth-graders weren’t allowed to move or get out of character.  If a patron wanted to hear about that character, he had to drop a penny in a cup.  The wax figure would then come to life and recite their fun facts!  
All the money raised went toward new books for the school library.  We thank everyone for your pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and even dollars!
