Living history: Meyersdale students dress as historical figures

May 10, 2019

The Meyersdale Area Elementary School held its fifth Living Wax Museum Thursday where fourth- and fifth-grade students dressed as historical figures and recited information about those people. “By the end of this activity, most students know who everyone is portraying and their stories,” teacher Amanda McNelly said. “The Wax Museum sparks a great deal of interest in history, for many. I have a group of boys now that are portraying Gettysburg generals, and they have become infatuated with the Civil War.”
