Students at Belle Terre Elementary School researched and dressed as characters for a live presentation on Thursday, May 17.
Students at Belle Terre Elementary School stood still as can be — frozen in time — at the school's wax museum the morning of Thursday, May 17.
Second-graders in four classes portrayed historical figures while remaining motionless. But with a push of a button, the students came alive to recite information about their character to other BTES students who visited the "museum."
Second-grade teacher Alma Bevacqua said she had each student pick a historical figure out of a hat and then research the person and their life's work, as part of BTES' focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).
"It helps them learn that they can become whatever they want to be," Bevacqua said.
