Katherine Chadwick's fourth-grade class at Kaegebein Elementary School celebrated Colonial Day Tuesday, Nov. 25. This day is based on a class novel the students read called "Felicity Learns a Lesson."
The girls prepared the dinner meal. They made applesauce, butter, peeled and mashed potatoes and prepared the stuffing. The boys learned lessons from hornbooks. The girls learned how to cross-stitch and have a tea party. The boys learned about Colonial-era occupations and constructed a sign to go with an occupation they are interested in. Both the boys and girls made soap, carved soap and stenciled.
Chadwick said all the students enjoyed this authentic experience with Colonial times.
