Your group will consist of five people:
1. Family Life - 2 students in the group will explore chores & farming,
food, trading and jobs. How were these things affected during the winter?
2. School - 1 student in the group will explore colonial school. How
often did children go to school? Could they go to school during the
winter? What other ways did they learn?
3. Clothing - 1 student in the group will explore colonial clothing. What
did the clothes look like? What kind of clothing did they
use to keep warm in the winter?
4. Games - 1 student in the group will explore games. What games could the
children play in the winter when it was too cold to go outside?
After your group has completed their individual assignments, you will work
together to create a map of the land where your colonial family lived. Each
group member will include the information from their assignment. Remember,
the season is WINTER.
Each group will present their work to the class. Students are encouraged to
dress up "Colonial Style" on presentation day.
