The fourth-grade classes at Cherokee Street Elementary School recently celebrated “Colonial Day,” in which the students mimicked the lives of Americans living in the colonial era.

During the course of the past month, students researched different trades of the time. They used the resources of the school library to prepare reports they could share with the class and their visiting parents. The fourth-graders got into character by dressing in costumes showcasing the clothing styles of the period; girls were able to make their own “mob cap bonnets,” while the boys wore “tricorn hats.”
