An annual event, Walk Through the American Revolution brings history to life for our fifth grade students. Our students rotated through stations in which they learned a colonial math game called Shut the Box; wrote with quill and ink, and embossed an impression on melted wax; played quoits, marbles, and Ninepins; and spun wool using a drop spindle.
Since Colonial Day, Mrs. Cregan traveled to Virginia where she visited Colonial Williamsburg and Yorktown and not only learned so much more to support the Fifth Grade Social Studies curriculum, but brought back even more games and "artifacts" for the kids to play and experience! This week, students used flint and steel to make sparks, they got to handle real arrowheads, and they learned how to play Nine Men's Morris. History is so fun!
