Wax Museum Program Teaches Research Skills

RAHWAY — Locating information is an important skill most fourth graders have difficulty with. Madison School in Rahway helps students develop their research skills with its annual wax museum project.

Students are assigned a topic that fits in with an overall theme– this year’s was New Jersey trivia. They research that topic online using approved websites, then write a short biography of their subject. They then dress in an appropriate costume on the day of the wax museum presentation, and share what they have learned with visitors.
