On Feb. 23, Rymfire Elementary School had a full house of families attend a "Night at the Museum." History came alive with several living history exhibits put on by different grade levels. Sixth-graders acted as Greek gods and goddesses to help the audience learn more about ancient history. The third grade living wax museum was the culminating project to a four-week long research unit. Students selected a STEM professional, researched and dressed up as that figure, and delivered a speech acting as that person. Visitors pressed paper "buttons" to bring the figures to life and learn about their important contributions to society.  Kindergarteners also highlighted their beginning research skills to present themselves as famous notable people in history.

students are in fifth and sixth grades and the club is led by a parent, Jeff McNaughton. They just finished a book about basketball called CrossOver by Kwame Alexander and thought it would be fun to play a game since it related to the book.
