Chamisa Elementary School Third Graders Portray Famous Figures At Annual Wax Museum

Interest is running high on Sports Row, as third graders impersonating waxwork figures of famous people tell their stories today at Chamisa Elementary School. Third graders may choose any figure they wish. They learn about the history of the person and give a short speech when a ticket is tossed in their ring. Fourth graders will portray New Mexico greats later in the day. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/ladailypost.com
