Williamsburg Simulation

This week, we "visited" colonial Williamsburg and simulated what life was like in the early American colonies. We visited many parts including a shoemakers shop, A milliner (female dress maker) and Tailor shop (male clothing maker), Governor's Palace, Raleigh Tavern and Public House, Dame School (Where upper class girls learned), Grammar School (Boy's School - reading, writing, arithmetic, Latin, geography), and a computer colonial persons online activity. Other stations I have done in the past include a Tin Maker, Slave Quarter Music, Colonial Occupation Signs, and a Wig Maker. 

Here is a photo tour of our field trip to Colonial Williamsburg! If you are interested in any of these stations - the Colonial Williamsburg Bundle is available at my TPT store HERE!
