‘Frozen’ Faces Depict History for Hiawatha Students

Prominent figures stood suspended in time throughout the gymnasium of Hiawatha Elementary School, as second-grade students dressed up like historical role models for the 10th annual Hiawatha Wax Museum.

Students incorporated various props into their displays, such as posters and short informational essays filled with facts about the person they chose to portray. As the second-graders remained frozen in their poses, students throughout the building had the opportunity to walk through the wax museum. Parents also visited and learned about the many significant people from history the students represented. 

The “wax” figures included Susan B. Anthony, Neil Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Barack Obama and George Washington, among many others. 

The annual wax museum aligns with the nonfiction genre studies element of the English language arts curriculum, in which students choose biographies of historical figures to research. 


Cracking Into Gravity Concepts

As part of a recent curriculum lesson on gravity, third-grade students at Hiawatha Elementary School participated in an exciting “eggsperiment” exploring the science behind a free-fall.

All third-graders were asked to compile assorted household materials that they could fit into a small milk container to protect an egg. Working in teams, students crafted their protective containers filled with various materials, such as cotton balls, cereal, feathers and tissues, that would be dropped from the roof of the school building. To increase the chances of a safe descent, several student groups added parachutes to their containers. Each student-designed container was tested by being dropped from the roof by Principal Kathleen O’Farrell. 

To conclude the lesson, students discussed the effects of gravity on the world around us and how they could improve their designs.
