Albert Lea High School 11th-grader Samantha Chicos pretends

to shave fifth-grader Tia Dupont as fifth-grader Missie Tripp

looks on Wednesday morning during the &uot;Discover History&uot;

program at the Freeborn County Museum and

Historical Village.

Students from the Albert Lea High School 11th grade humanities

class spent two weeks researching the museum library and


area seniors to find out about the history of this region. The

students then broke into several teams to plan sessions to inform

other students on the history of many different topics. The high-school

students are now teaching what they learned to area fifth graders.
