Second-grade students at West Gates Avenue Elementary School recently held their annual Wax Museums of historical figures. Upon researching figures throughout history and creating biography posters, students dressed the part and hosted an exhibit for their parents and peers.   

Students took on the role of historical figures such as Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and Amelia Earhart; sports figures, such as Babe Ruth and Mario Lemieux; and others, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs and Coco Chanel.

Fifth-grade students of West Gates Elementary School recently participated in the “Trial of Goldilocks,” a curriculum-based cultural arts program written and directed by Hofstra law professor Glen Vogel. The program introduces students to the basic elements of the legal system, strengthens developing skills such as higher order thinking, sequencing and public speaking and improves the students reading and writing skills.

After a series of push-in lessons and preparation, the students, donned the costumes of familiar fairy tale characters and took to the courtroom, a gymnasium in which they acted out a scene in which Goldilocks is on trial, charged with criminal mischief, trespassing and petit larceny.

The judge, a member of the West Gates staff, and members of the fourth-grade jury heard evidence from the prosecution and defense and delivered a verdict.
