On Friday, September 24th, Fifth-grade classes participated in a “colonial day” to learn about what life would have been like in the original 13 Colonies. They made butter, sewed hats, played games, and wrote with quills and ink. It was a blast trying activities from the 1700s and seeing just how different life is now.
