A'town second-graders portray historical figures for annual show


Austintown second-graders showed their historical knowledge this week at Austintown Elementary’s annual Wax Museum Show.

“It’s the biggest project of the year,” said second-grade teacher Jackie Moretti.

Students are tasked with picking one person in history to represent in a presentation for their parents.

They hold “buttons” for parents to press to begin each student’s skit made up of a summary of their character’s life, a visual representation of the character’s contribution to the world and persona in general.

Characters included Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, J.K. Rolling, Thomas Jefferson and more.
