colonies. Colonies are kind of like states. It

then people had to hunt for food and kill
animals. People traded food, toys, tools and
WELCOME TO MY VILLAGE
In my village you will ﬁnd an apothecary . An apothecary
would sell medicines and spices to people. Blacksmiths in our
town made tools from metal and iron. Post oﬃces would sell
newspapers. Colonial men went to a wheelwright to buy
wheels for their wagons, carriages and stagecoaches. Back in
the colonial times there was a governor that owned a few
buildings. Many buildings were made out of wood, and a few
were made of brick.
My wonderful clothing
In the colonial times girls wore dresses that went down to their knees. and elbows.
boys wore knee length pants . When it was cold the men wore socks They used
buttons instead of zippers. Also wealthy people bought clothing from Europe. Rich
boys dressed up like their fathers. Back in the day , clothing was heavy and thick.
Cloth was made from sheep’s wool.
Steps for Making Cloth:
● Step 1: Cut oﬀ sheep wool
● Step 2: Make into thread
● Step 3: Make it into cloth
Before school I must help by gathering all of the eggs from the chickens and
also feed the chickens. I must help by cleaning all the pens for the farm and
after school I must help by spreading fresh hay around the pens for the cows
,pigs ,horses and sheep. Also after school, I milk the cows. My sister liked
most of the girls in her school She made butter for are family and it took a
few hours to make the butter also girls had to cook for their family also boys
had to hunt and build for their family and also the girls cooked every night for
their family. That’s what you would do if you were a colonial child
