Lyndonville 4th-graders portray famous figures
Press Release, Lyndonville Central School
LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville fourth-grade roster had famous names such as Steve Irwin, Rosa Parks and Barack Obama for one afternoon. Students last week participated in a Biography Wax Museum as a culminating event to a research project.
Nicole Adamson’s students studied historical figures and popular names prior to the event. The students created poster displays about the individuals and had a start “button” on the poster. The fourth-graders stood still in front of their posters until a visitor pressed the button. The students then came to life as the characters and shared facts about themselves.
“My favorite part of the project was to dress up as Amelia Earhart,” said fourth-grader Alviia Goigova. “She was brave enough to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.”
Each student ended their speech with an inspirational wish for their visitor.
“I hope I inspire you to keep trying and persevere,” said Sarah Corser as she portrayed Marie Curie.
“I hope to inspire you to help injured animals,” said Logan Gerling, who was Steve Irwin.
“I hope to teach you to do anything if you try hard enough,” said Grant Freeman as Jackie Robinson.
