Knoxville elementary students 'wax' intellectual about history

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It just might be the most realistic wax museum you've ever seen, and it's all part of a big history project for fifth-graders at Sequoya school.

The students were instructed to choose from dozens of people they've studied throughout the year and prepare about a minute-long speech about that person, and their impact, good and bad, on national and Tennessee history.

Then the classroom was set up like a wax museum.

They delivered their speeches on everyone from Rosa Parks, Adolf Hitler, and Gutenberg.
