A Michigan teacher's controversial history lesson is getting mixed reaction.

The Linden teacher allowed 5th graders to drink non-alcoholic beer inside the classroom.

The school's superintendent says it was part of a class project about colonial times.

A social studies teacher asked her students to bring in food or drink that represented that era.

One parent decided to bring in cornbread and O'Doul's.

Some parents say the move sends the wrong message to kids.

The superintendent says it was an honest mistake.

The State Liquor Commissions says it is a misdemeanor to furnish "near beers" to minors.
