4 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 20!3 Students participate in Living Wax Museum For the past two months Mr. Saenz' class at Central Elementary School has been studying influential people in history.The students, along with their families, put a lot of time and effort into researching and learning their chosen person's life.The goal of this project was to allow the students to gain a more in depth understanding of people from our history and to also understand what it was that made them so influential to the people around them and the people that would follow in their footsteps. Mr. Saenz also wanted his students to research their chosen person to where they were able to portray that specific person in a Living Wax Museum, which was held on March 8, 2012. He wanted his students to notice the doorways that these influential people opened up for us all.
