  • On April 23, Mrs. Twila Wagner and her third grade class put on their 6th annual Wax Museum, entitled A Look Back in Time. The students picked one of their elder relatives to portray. Mrs. Wagner said, “It enables students to learn about their ancestry, community history, and helps them develop communication skills.”
    Mrs. Wagner has her kids interview the person, write and memorize their story, make a poster with pictures and facts, and finally prepare their outfits. Students portrayed their character's life when a coin was dropped in their can. All proceeds were given to Osage Mission Neosho County Museum.
    The program started with all the students telling the history of the honored guest. Jolene Born shared a presentation and a short power point. After the visitors were able to go around and see all the kids' individual displays.
    Third graders Austin O'Hara and Dylan Petty both agreed dressing like their researched historical figure, and the cookies were the best part. The students had two weeks to prepare for their big night. Katelyn Bradshaw did her presentation over here grandmother Ellen Bradshaw. Katelyn added, “I liked memorizing my speech because I learned a lot about my grandma.” Another third grader, Claire Bradshaw, interviewed Mary Lou Crager. Claire’s favorite part was memorizing her speech as well.
    This year's wax museum was a great success and Mrs. Wagner hopes she can do it again next year. A big thanks to Prairie Mission for partaking in the dress rehearsal, as well to the Exchange State Bank for the advertising.
