A Different Kind of Frozen

1. Oprah (Markayla, 3rd grade)
2. John H. Johnson (Roland, 2nd grade)
3. Dr. Garrett Morgan (Brandon, 1st grade)
4.  President Barack Obama (Jaden, 1st grade)
5. Rosa Parks (Julia, 2nd grade)

Did you know Oprah was at Ludlow-Taylor ES on Thursday, February 26? President Obama was in the building too.

To wrap up Black History Month, students posed as famous wax figures in a Black History Museum. The “celebrities” would stand frozen in time. Their classmates would come up to them, clap, and the wax figures would share something about themselves before “freezing” again. Afterward, visiting students would get a stamp in their passport for learning about these important historical figures. Take a look!

 

  1. Oprah (Markayla, 3rd grade)“I was born in 1954 and I have my own morning show and my own network.”
