Inspiring Heroes and Heroines

In fifth grade, we do a project called the Wax Museum. We choose a hero or heroine, British or Colonist, from the American Revolutionary War time. We research our person and prepare a speech. Each student becomes an animatronic. People press a red button to activate us. We talk about our hero or heroine, and what they did during the war, and how they affected it. Near the end of school, in June, each class will have their own Wax Museum in the Library. Parents, relatives, and students are encouraged to visit and learn about some important heros and heroines.

Here are our heroes and heroine and hope you enjoy learning about who they are and their impact on the American Revolution.
