Ideal School Hosts ‘Living Wax Museum’

The Ideal School in Royal Palm Beach became a living wax museum on Thursday, Jan. 30, when elementary and middle school students celebrated famous figures who represented one of Harvard Professor Howard Gardner’s eight Multiple Intelligences — Bodily Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Logical/Mathematical, Musical/Rhythmical, Naturalist, Visual/Spatial and Verbal/Linguistic.

Students in second through eighth grades dressed the part of a famous role model they chose and gave informative presentations in full costume. The students were “frozen” like statues in character until a visitor pressed their “on” button, and then they came to life and gave their verbal presentation. Family members and friends packed the halls to witness this display of academic excellence.

This interactive learning experience is part of the school’s enriched language arts curriculum. The Ideal School has been enriching the lives of students and their families for almost three decades. It was founded in 1993 by Dr. Kris and Wendy Soderman, the active co-principals/owners of the school.
