On November 16, The Spotted Eagle Owls Cluster presented their historical Wax Museum that highlighted figures from the 1500's through the late 1700's. The Wax Museum is shared each year at the PTC Thanksgiving Feast that is attended by the entire Capitol School community.
This year, the students spoke to museum visitors from 5:00 - 6:00pm at the Belk PARA center in Tuscaloosa. Included in the group were famous explorers, rebels, patriots, writers and presidents.
Families were able to meet Christopher Columbus, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Betsy Ross, Martha and George Washington, Hernando Cortes, Abigail and John Adams, to name a few.
Students worked from September through November to research and write their speeches from sources including books and websites. This event is a major part of the history and literacy curriculum for our cluster.
