During a “Living Wax Museum” project at Cedar Crest Elementary School in Greenville on Monday morning, organized by fifth grade teacher Jean Stevens, students recounted the lives and characters of a variety of individuals from the past representing the United States.

Students were required to identify and explain how their individual in history demonstrated good character and personal virtue as well as summarize the sequence of key events from their lives.

They stood still until visitors would shake an empty bottle, bringing the students to life as they portrayed their various historic figures reciting a prepared speech.
