4th Grade Wax Museum

On April 10th, fourth graders at Piedmont dressed as historical Americans and became a wax museum lining the halls of the elementary campus.   This annual tradition begins with studying American history as part of the Core Knowledge curriculum and includes writing biographies on important American figures.  Wax museum attendees walked through the halls and dropped coins into a jar next to the student to make their wax figure come to life.  The students then shared a biography about the life of their important American leader.  Mrs. Sparrow shares, “Students love project based learning.  They retain the information so well when they are excited about a project.”

The fourth graders raised a total of $975 in their jars.  They will donate the money to Least of the These Carolinas, which supports foster children and caregivers.
