Mrs. Brendel's fourth grade class at Maplewood invited their parents to a Wax Museum. The students did a biography book report. However there was a twist, the students were to dress up as their person and do an oral presentation. The students researched their person they chose and also created an "All About Me Box" which included 5-7 objects or pictures related to their person placed in a shoe box. Some of the people that were at the museum were Steve Jobs, Babe Ruth, Walt Disney, Amelia Earhart, Simone Biles, and Sally Ride. The class did an outstanding job!
