After participating in Colonial Day, fifth graders at BMS are quite happy they live in the 21st Century. For Colonial Day, our fifth graders rotated through four stations (20 minutes each). In one station, they learned about colonial games with Mrs. Middleton. Students learned and played games such as “Spoon and Egg Race,” the “Three-Legged Race,” and the “Hoop and Stick Race.” Mrs. Rhodes’ station required the students to write with a quill pen. Students were given a feather and watered down black paint to write the Preamble or the Pledge of Allegiance. Students were also given a cursive chart to try cursive with a quill pen. I think the image below really sums up all the students’ thoughts.
