It was like a step back in time as historical figures came to life at the Madame Tussaud Wax Museum held Thursday afternoon at Huron Heights Public School, Kincardine.
Grades 3-6 students depicted the wax figures, and stood still until their classmates, parents and visitors clapped their hands three times, and then the figures came to life and told their stories.
The historical characters depicted the Medieval Times, the Egyptian Era, and Ancient China.
Meanwhile, in the library, several projects were on display, showing the Natives and Pioneers of North America - everything from the Blackfoot Tribe to the Inuit.
