Photo Gallery: Kids celebrate Living History Day 1/19

Ross Outhier, left, attracts the attention of a small girl as he sits briefly between talks about Thomas Paine, the figure he portrays. Wearing authentic era attire, students in Rhonda Watkins' fourth and fifth grade social studies classes at Schwartz Elementary School portrayed various figures from the American Revolution period during  a living history museum program in the school's library on Wednesday,  Jan. 30,  2013.  The students selected a historical person from a list provided by Watkins, and  were required to research the subject, write a report and make a verbal presentation about the person. All students in the school were invited to the library to hear the characters tell about their lives.   Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
