Young historians: Students get research tips at History Hullabaloo


Addison Pyrz, 11, got some coaching on how to research her history project from Bob Ferguson, (left) a retired teacher who works as a mentor for the Minnesota Historical Society.

Pryz joined students from Park High School and Lake, Oltman and Woodbury Middle schools for a History Hullabaloo Dec. 12 at R.H. Stafford Library in Woodbury. Ferguson said he advised Pyrz to include historical context in her project, which is about the Berlin Wall.

The Hullabaloo was part of National History Day, an interdisciplinary research competition for students in grades 6-12.
