The BeSt Wax Museum (Susan B. Anthony & Betsy Ross together at last!)

Here are Susan B. Anthony & Betsy Ross; together at last! At Belmont Station elementary (BeSt), one of the programs for the 3rd graders is a wax museum. The students wear a button (Kathryn has hers on in the pic) that says, "Push to talk."
The students have researched their famous American for the past month and create a poster. The 3rd graders are seated in the hall beneath their poster. When someone pushes their button, the child stands and recites one fact about their famous American (6 facts total.) This was so cute! My mom sewed their costumes. I have to admit these are two of the cutest girls at BeSt!!!

Ahhh...the girls are too cute! I'd have to push their buttons cause I really need a history lesson...lol Amazing how much you forget as we get older...especially Susan B. Anthony...I'm like what did she do now? I'll hop on over to Wikipedia now! Thanks for sharing the photos of the girls...have a great day, fondly, Roberta

They are the cutest little brunetties ever!! And those outfits!! Stupendous, wowy!!! I don't know what TeamShively would do without gramma and her sewing! Oh, and she crocheted/knitted (not sure which, I can't tell from the stitch) all four of us prayer shawls! My daughter is in 3rd and would completely love that kind of program!!! Love you, lambent lady!
