Colonial days at Fuqua

Fuqua School fourth grade students completed a Colonial Days project this November following the completion of their study of early colonization and the settlement of Jamestown in Virginia History and the reading of a whole class novel, “Blood on the River,” by Elisa Carbone. Students then worked with a fellow classmate to research one of the following colonial jobs: apothecary, cabinet maker, chandler, cooper, milliner, printer and wheelwright. The students worked to research information regarding their job and also to prepare a speech. During art class students sketched a backdrop of their colonial shop with the project culminating with students dressing in colonial attire and presenting their work to classmates, parents and guests. “The class thoroughly enjoyed applying the information they learned about colonial America into their projects and bringing history to life,” stated fourth grade teacher, Krystal Tucker.
