Students learn history thanks to a living “wax” museum
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Students at Southfield Elementary School in Macon got a chance to learn history in a special way: a living “wax” museum.
In honor of black history month, staff and faculty of Southfield dressed up as well-known African American historical figures to give history lessons as children walked around and “activated” them one by one.
The principal of Southfield, Janice Sharpe, said this was an important way to inspire a younger generation to believe in themselves and become dreamers.
“It was important for our students to see who they could become,” Sharpe said. “That they could be and do anything that they wanted to in life.”
Principal Sharpe went on to say that she was proud of her students, as they were very well behaved throughout the event.
