Back in Time...

This past week was a CRAZY busy week in my classroom.  Monday brought the Mock Election, Tuesday was a day off, and Wednesday was full blown Colonial Day.  Needless to say, by the end of the week, I was flat out EXHAUSTED.

For Colonial Day, we decided as a team that instead of doing it all ourselves, we would hire it out.  Best decision of my life!  If you are in South Carolina, North Carolina, or Georgia, check out Captain Sadler's Living History Camp.  This outfit brings EVERYTHING needed for a successful day.  Teachers get to choose the activities that take place and the group provides all of the materials.

Unfortunately, it rained on our day, so we had to forego the game of Rounders and dipping candles for activities that could be completed inside.

 Students played with traditional Colonial Games - Graces, 9 pins, Hoops and Sticks, Jacob's Ladder, Ball and Cup, Bilbo Catcher, Tops, and Yo-Yos.

 Captain Sadler also provided costumes for the kids to dress up in for photographs.  Most students chose the Native American costumes.

 We made Native American necklaces after we bartered for beads.

And we had Colonial School! Kids thought it was extremely fun to be on the Dunce Stool.  The day was fabulous, but exhausting!  We enjoyed everything about it.
