After more than a month of researching and preparing the 5th graders enjoyed a morning welcoming "customers" into their shoppes! Thanks to all of the parents and teachers who were able to attend. If you couldn't make it, we hope you enjoy these pictures and reflective comments from the colonial trades-people!
|One of my customers taught me something I did not know that was very interesting.|
I learned that people would ask a lot of questions you did not know. I am proud of my costume, research, and props that I made or wrote. ~~Liam, Glassmaker
|My trade was a miller. I learned that water wheels grind wheat into flour and corn into cornmeal. It was fun and took me 10 minutes to make my water wheel at home. It was fun telling other people about my water wheel. ~~Bryan, Miller|
I’m proud of the powder I made at the fair. One of the things my customers said was ew you used leeches. What I learned by studying the Apothecary was that they used leeches to drain infection.
