PIONEER VILLAGE - Maryville Elementary fifth graders had an opportunity to wax poetic like historical figures.
The school hosted a history wax museum with students playing the roles of important historical figures.
Each student selected their figure, researched their biography information, then wrote and performed a monologue while dressed as the figure.
Alex Duncan selected Walt Disney based on her love of cartoon movies.
"The most movies I watch are animated and he basically invented animation." Duncan said.
