Recently Mrs. Sally Nelson's fifth-grade class celebrated a "Colonial Day" after studying about the original Thirteen English Colonies of North America. During the day, students participated in many "colonial-type" activities including making bread and butter, dipping candles, writing with feather pens, participating in a spelling bee, and doing 'rithmetic sitting in rows without the use of a desk. They also made hornbooks and played colonial games like marbles and hoop games.
