MKES 4th Grade Colonial Day

This week the 4th graders at MKES had a special presenter come to teach us all about Colonial times. We learned what supplies Colonists used to cook with and had the opportunity to make butter! We also learned that corn was an important food that Colonists used in their cooking. We got to grind corn and make hushpuppies from it. We smelled different spices Colonists used to cook with. We even used cloves to make a pomander. We also learned about popular games that young children played with. Finally, we learned about what school life was like for young Colonists. What a fun time we all had!
