History coming to life at Galion Intermediate May 3

April 24, 2019

Third grade students at the Galion Intermediate School will bring history to life Friday, May 3. The annual Third Grade Wax Museum of Famous People will feature 120 third grade students portraying a famous person of their choosing.

Students have been working on their projects for the last several weeks. Third grade teachers encouraged students to involve parents and family in selecting a famous, deceased person who has made a significantly positive impact on history.

“Projects are most meaningful and enriching when a chosen subject is of interest to the family,” third grade teacher Kim Chandler said. “Many students look forward to Wax Museum because siblings, and even parents, have participated in the project as third graders.”

The Wax Museum has provided students with the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills learned throughout third grade for more than twenty years. The Wonders program has an entire unit focused on “valuing the past”.

“Our science curriculum includes a focus on scientists, inventors, and careers in science and technology,” Chandler said. “Students must use research skills to create a keynote presentation on their iPad.”

This year’s Wax Museum of Famous People will be on display from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Galion Intermediate School for the parents and Galion community. Please contact Kim Chandler at 419-468-3676 with questions or for more information.
