The third-grade students of Edith Erickson at St. Francis de Sales School in Escanaba brought history to life when they hosted their second annual Living Museum. This year, the museum had a Michigan History theme, focusing on historical figures who made Michigan their home. At the museum, the students dressed in costume and stood statue-still until their “play” button was pressed. When pressed, the “statues”came to life and told their life’s stories to visiting classes and parents. Pictured is Paige Rochefort as she poses as Bishop Frederick Baraga.
