Wax Museum

In third grade one of the things the kids look forward to is the wax museum. Lily has seen the older kids perform this for the last few years and she was looking forward to her turn. 
Each child picks a historical person who made an impact on history in some way. 
It was a tough decision and some of the people Lily would have like to do her report on were already taken (J.K. Rowling). She decided (with some prompting from her parents of course) on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
They read books about their person, wrote a whole speech, and then dressed in character for the morning of the wax museum. It was so cool. Ruth poses with her BFF Scarlett aka Audrey Hepburn.
The parents attend the wax museum in the morning and walk around and push the button on the wax figure's hand to activate the speech. There were so many diverse and interesting characters from past and present.
I'm not at all biased but I'm pretty certain Lily's was the best!!
