For the last couple of weeks we've been busy with our Colonial studies. First, we learned about the first English settlement established in 1607, called Jamestown.
Next, students got a tiny glimpse into what life was like on the 66 day ocean journey on the Mayflower. After landing on Cape Cod and anchoring the Mayflower, two smaller boats called shallops went in search of a better location to settle and founded Plymouth.
We also got started with craft workshops this week. Girls and boys are getting the knack of sewing and are completing the stitches necessary to make their vests, aprons, haversacks, pockets, and bonnets. We will finish up sewing this week and move onto stenciling of wall hangings and checkerboards, and the hammering of copper to make lanterns.
