Welcome to the 13 Colonies!

A colony is a place owned by another country. The 13 colonies in
America were owned by England and ruled by King George.There were
only thirteen colonies back then because there were less people in the
U.S. The northern colonies had good fertile soil and furs. The middle
colonies had good farms and raised animals. The southern colonies
made a lot of money because they had beaver skins.

Honey, Iḿ Home!

Hi I’m Isaac. I want to give you a tour of my house.
My house is a little small but I am happy to live in it
with my family. Be careful as you walk into my house.
You might hit your head on my small door. I’m sorry it
is so dark in our house. We don’t have any windows.
We usually have to use a torch or candles..but we can’t
waste the oil or candles. We are only going to use the
fire in the kitchen for light today. We all sleep on the
ground. Sometimes it’s comfortable and sometimes it’s
not. When it’s hot, my hay mattress can get real itchy.
In the winter, my mattress sure doesn’t keep us warm.

Dinnerś Ready: What the Colonists Ate

Colonial Americans hunted, grew crops
and raised animals for food.

Fun Fact: Fires needed to stay burning in the kitchen fireplace.
If a family ran out of coal the children would go to neighbors for
more coal. Keeping the fire going was extremely.

Colonial Fashion

Wealthy colonists wore tight expensive fabric. Ordinary people
like farmers, housewives, laborers and servants wore cheap
loose fitting fabric. Colonists wore their best clothes to church.

Spring Cleaning

Boys and Girls were expected to help with work from
a young age.

Some of their chores were:

● Gathering eggs from the chickens
● Milking cows
● Helping mother prepare meals
● Gathering wood for the fire with father
● Sewing
