The Revolutionary War

Mr. George (not George Washington) came to our class today to teach us about the Revolutionary War.  We had so much fun and learned a lot.  We even got to play games and do chores that kids back then would have done.  I learned an interesting fact...some women fought in the war too! The kids really liked the money and dressing up!

What we would have looked like in the 1700's!

A slate to practice school work!

Soap!  They only took a bath twice a year in the 1700's!

That is a brick of tea and it is how it came to America from the East India trading company.

Playing the fife!


A lantern with distinguishing marks to identify the owner!

A game for kids...trying to get a ball attached to a string into the hole!

Kids had chores fetching the water!

Apparently teachers also have chores!
