5th Grade Experiences Life in the Colonies
Article written by: Mara Bantug, Will Avina and Milun Kalidindi
On Colonial Day, the 5th grade experienced life in the colonies. We had six different stations. They were apple butter, the tavern, quill pens, tea time, Quincy Market with sewing, and the silversmith. At the apple butter station the 5th grade made their own apple butter. Each apple butter had its own taste. At the tavern, our class ate bread and drank cream soda or root beer while playing classic games. The 5th grade was ready to mash berries at the quill pen station. We wrote letters with berry ink and sealed letters with wax. At tea time, we drank tea and had biscuits and learned silly colonial manners. At the Quincy Market, we sewed bean bags and used colonial money to buy all sorts of colonial goods. At the silversmith station our class made lanterns and string symbols. This was our amazing Colonial Day!
