Seventh graders go back in time

May 26, 2016

colonial dayColonial America returned to Schalmont Middle School last week.

Seventh-graders had the chance to interact with Ben Franklin, an American Indian, a fife and drum unit, the Colonial militia, and British soldiers. They also learned some Colonial games, Colonial cooking, how to march and drill with the militia, and much more.

The day's activities complement students' study of the United States' 13 original colonies. The event is held each year to help students visualize and better understand this important period of American history.
