Colonial Day Blog Post

Colonial day is when you get to do things that colonial people would do back then. My grade experienced it and it was so much fun!

One of my favorite activity is stenciling. One reason why it was my favorite activity is that my class got to experience how the people in colonial times would do stenciling. Another reason why stenciling was one of my favorite activity is that my class got to make our own cards by using stencils and paint by dabbing it on. Another one of my favorite activity was Dame School. One reason why it is one of my favorite activity is that when the teacher said that we had to say a word in front of the class I got the word bee. The girls got easy words the boys got hard words. If the boys did not spell the word correctly then they would get a sign that might say idle boy or you would have to sit in the coldest place in the classroom.

 

One thing I learned about colonial day is that girls do a lot of easy stuff and boys do a lot of hard stuff. Another thing that I learned about colonial day is that boys and girls did not have the same toys as now.

 

One thing I want learn more about is why girls do easy things and boys do hard things. Another thing I want to learn more about is why you could not just brush the paint on instead of dabbing the paint on.

 

Colonial times is different from now because you have to wear a certain type of clothes.
