— Colonial Day

As part of Social Studies, Fifth Grade students enjoyed “living” the life of a colonist and “set sail” for the “New World”. They played a simulation game where colonists (students) travel, establish a colony and pull “fate cards” to determine how their colony survives. Each group can choose to attack or trade with natives or other colonists. Like our first settlers, colonists needed to plan their daily labor, ration food and supplies, and make life or death decisions. At last, students celebrated Colonial Day on March 17th. They dressed up and lived the life of a colonist for a day, and ended the experience with a “Liber-Tea” and dance!
