Students at Edwardsburg Intermediate School went back in time as they participated in the fourth annual Edwardsburg 5th Grade Wax Museum.

Students researched historical American leaders and related the information they’d learned on demand as visitors made their way through a virtual museum of students.

By pressing on a ‘button,’ visitors could see the students’ characters come to life and get a quick history lesson on everyone from Eleanor Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Sitting Bull and even Hilary Clinton.
