Kids celebrate Living History Day 10/19

Students sit at the feet of Dylan Sewell to hear his presentation about Patrick Henry. Sewell recited a line from one of Henry's most famous speeches, "Give me liberty or give me death." 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
