Remaining motionless for an hour might have been the greatest challenge for the sixth-graders who created an ancient Egyptian wax museum for their fellow students at Towne Meadows Elementary School in Gilbert Unified School District.

Students created a museum in each of the four sixth-grade classrooms, complete with original drawings of period artifacts and a life-sized paper mummy. Each student researched a god, goddess, or historical figure and then dressed as that Egyptian. During the one-hour presentation the students posed as wax figures and were allowed to speak only as their character, demonstrating their knowledge of ancient Egypt.
