History Comes Alive at Saltzman East Memorial Elementary School

Students at Saltzman East Memorial Elementary School recently put on a Living History Museum Event. Students were asked to select a deceased historical figure, research them, and create a costume. Every grade was invited to participate. On the night of the event, the children lined the school hallways—dressed in historical costumes—and posed in a statuesque manner. Family and friends arrived as museum visitors and pushed a pretend button to make each historical figure statue come to life, reciting who they were and what made them famous.
