In a decades-old tradition, fifth- and seventh-grade students at St. Jude Thaddeus School helped portray history by portraying wax figures in a museum.

The students held the annual Wax Museum Thursday night in St. Jude's Havre Central Gymnasium.

In the Wax Museum project, fifth-grade teacher Kristen Takeuchi and seventh-grade teacher Carly Brunk had their students research historical figures - this year's theme was child saints - write a research paper in MLA format, and create a display and a costume.

The students and their families had a pizza party in the St. Jude Parish Center, then went to hold the wax museum.

During the museum, the students had to hold absolutely still, like a wax figure, while people looked at their displays and read the reports. Then they were able to relax for a period, answering questions from the people touring the museum.

Then they had to freeze once more, acting as figures, until the next question-and-answer period.
