History in the Making

If you visited Garth Elementary School recently you may have found yourself in the presence of greatness as 90 fifth grade students offered a fresh perspective on history. 


The wax museum, a culminating event for a month-long project, was an incredible experience for students and visitors alike according to teacher Abby Snyder.


The students first read a biography of an influential United States citizen or a person who has had a great impact on our country.  They completed a book report and developed both a visual and an oral presentation.


Many included elaborate costumes to bring a significant or historical character to life for the audience of fellow students, parents and guests.


For a brief moment, the school was transformed as characters like Harriet Tubman, Jimi Hendrix, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Neil Armstrong and Ulysses S. Grant crossed paths with legends like Pocahontas, Houdini, Elvis and Michael Jordan.  


So much excitement filled the historic hallway, it was easy to forget just how much the students at Garth learned in the process.
