A Step Back in Time

A Step Back in Time  thumbnail143870
Cherokee Street Elementary School fourth grade students stepped back in time as they celebrated Colonial Day this November. 

Inspired by their classroom lessons, the students dressed in traditional colonial attire and hosted family and friends for an informational presentation. As they prepared for the cross-curricular project, the students worked in the library to research different colonial occupations. They then crafted informative paragraphs describing the products or services provided by the various trades, the tools used for the job and how the trade was important to the colonial village. Additionally, the students designed their own colonial signs, just like the ones that were often hung outside each shop. 

During the presentation, they individually shared their research, and at the end of the presentation, all were invited to join together to enjoy some traditional colonial food, including corn cakes and cider.
