Duluth, MN (Northland’s NewsCenter) --- Using seashells, dog food, colored pencils and anything else they could get their hands on, middle school students at Holy Rosary Catholic School showcased their creativity to make historical costumes.

Drama students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades modeled 10 costumes based on historical images and eras.

Students were given five themes, nature, school, sports, animals and water and used unconventional materials to design their costumes.

They presented their projects to students during lunch Tuesday afternoon.

"We learned how to improvise a lot, with a lot of stuff,” Flannery Glisczinski, of the 8th grade said. “We learned how to work together I think as a class because a lot of this stuff wasn't ours. We brought in a lot of stuff for each other. We also learned how to put together costumes which is cool because for our plays, we provide our own costumes."

Students will present a dramatic performance at the Teattro Zucconee later this year.
