4th Grade Celebrates Colonial Days

Carmel Elementary School fourth-graders cap off their lessons about Colonial life and celebrate the Thanksgiving season with a Colonial Days event.

 

Children and teachers wear period costumes and learn about Colonial times by listening to guest speakers, trying their hand at crafts like butter churning, tin punching and writing with a quill and ink and enjoy a feast provided by partners and business partner, Jeremy Powell of Oink Crackle Moo.
