It is our belief that young children learn best when they become immersed in their learning. To that end the third grade team planned a unit of study in which students investigated what life would have been like for a child in colonial America. Each child learned about various aspects of colonial life such as: school, home, work, clothing, food, medicine, music, and recreation.  The study involved field trips, literature, both fiction and non-fiction, technology, art, cooking, and crafts.
