NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Fourth-graders at Jefferson Elementary School this week dressed as notable figures from history and modern day as they stood as "sculptures" for visiting parents and siblings, according to the school district.
The children dressed as famous people from history, including Henry Ford and gymnast Gabby Douglas, and as more modern people like Kobe Bryant and Steve Jobs.
According to the district, they stood perfectly still until passing adults pushed a "Press Me" sticker on the students' shirts or jackets.
The students then "sprang to life," reciting biographical information about the famous person's life.
The students researched the feats accomplished by famous people as well as the challenges each faced. The children then wrote essays on the famous people and created craft displays.
According to the district, the students selected the notable person based on personal interest.
