Students pose as wax figures for project

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- When you think of wax museum's, you think of famous places in New York or Las Vegas. But, students at Lewis and Clark elementary blended their history projects with the ability to stand still and recreate their subject.

"I learned just about everything there is to know. It's a month to put it all together so you learn as much as there is to about your person," says student Drew Daves, who posed as Alexander the Great. Student Gabriel Sams has really enjoyed the experience of blending school work and being active, "it's pretty fun, you get to spend so much time on this one person you choose."

The program called Beyond Biographies is in its fifth year. It includes students from the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades who perform reports on historical figures.
