We've been busy continuing our study of colonial times. This week we focused on colonial jobs as well as our important colonial person of the week- Ben Franklin.
A learned all about the many different jobs needed to keep a colonial town running with this book that I downloaded onto her I-Pad.
After reading it, we put her knowledge to the test with this worksheet (which frankly I have no clue where I found it...somewhere when I was googling late one night I am sure).
I then asked A to pick a job that she would like to have done if she lived in colonial times, and write about it in first person. She asked if it had to be a job women could do, or could she pick anything. Of course I said any job she wanted, so she choose to be a cooper- also known as a barrel maker. LOL.
Today she worked on a poster project of Benjamin Franklin. She finished reading the biography "Who Was Ben Franklin?"
She worked for a long time on this and completed it entirely on her own. She was very proud and I think she did an amazing job on it. She gave a great report to go along with it. I learned several things I did not know about Ben Franklin today.
...a few close ups of the poster
And just for some added fun, a little white board doodle from A of a Brownie Girl Scout holding both the American and Alaskan flags.
Tomorrow we are dipping candles...stay tuned, this is going to be fun!
