Chamisa hosts its annual Wax Museum

By The Staff

Students from Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock were busy this semester learning about historical figures, both from New Mexico and around the world.
The middle team at Chamisa — third and fourth graders — were asked to research a prominent person from the past so well that they could imitate them.
And that’s exactly what they did at the school’s annual Wax Museum earlier this month. Chamisa principal Debbie Smith said students in third grade were asked to look at the lives of anyone they wished who have had an impact on history, while fourth graders looked into figures from New Mexico. Fourth graders also built cubes with information on their figures.
But the highlight of the project is the wax museum. Visitors from the community came into the school and put in tickets to bring the students — who dressed as their subjects — to life, reciting the facts about their figure’s life.
