Campbell 3rd-graders create mini-Madame Tussauds
Campbell third-graders turned the Campbell K-7 school cafeteria into a miniature Madame Tussauds on Wednesday afternoon, taking on the personas of historical figures for the second annual student “wax museum” presentation.
Dressed-up students stood along the perimeter of the cafeteria and wore buttons on their shoulders reading “press here.” When parents or other students pressed the button, the students would recite information about the figure that they were portraying.
One little boy dressed in a suit and sporting a moustache with a sign proclaiming “I have a dream” was Martin Luther King Jr. Another student with an unruly shock of gray hair portrayed Albert Einstein. A little girl dressed like a pilot from the 1930s was Amelia Earhart.
The students – two third-grade classrooms, 41 students in all – worked on the presentation for six weeks.
