Mrs. Kathy Chadwick's 4th grade class at Kaegebein Elementary celebrated "Colonial Day" on Monday, November 25th. The day is based on a class novel the students read called "Felicity Learns a Lesson." The girls prepare the dinner meal, making applesauce, butter and peeling and mashing potatoes. They also learn how to do cross stich and have a tea party. The boys learn lessons from hornbooks and learn about Colonial occupations, constructing a sign to go with the occupation they are interested in. Both the boys and girls make and carve soap, write with a quill feather and ink, and stencil. Many parents help with the day, dressed in costume.
