    Colonial Picnic
    By LLK

    Clip to ScrapBook
    When I taught Gr 5, my coworkers ( 4 0f us) and I did a whole day rotation in each other's rooms where each room did a particular art that went along with colonial times. One was quill writing...using Ben Franklin's proverbs, one did marble bags and wampum beads for the Native American side of things, one did a construction paper art where you curl the paper to form things, one did candle dipping, and I can't remember what else. We had students bring in food items like corn bread and beef jerkey and pumpkin pie and everyone ate at the end of the day. The students dressed up like in colonial times. It was a hectic but fun day. Go to your library and have your librarian find some books on colonial projects. There are a lot of them out there.
    Not much on specifics but hope this gives you some ideas to work from.
