EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Seniors at an area apartment building received a history lesson from 4th and 5th graders Monday afternoon.

Kids from an after school program at Longfellow Elementary in Eau Claire made a trip to the Saint Francis Apartments, to teach residents about the Hmong culture, including their stories, food, clothing and language.

This is the first time the school has ever done anything like this, but teachers there say it probably won't be the last.
