What were the Colonial Times?

A colony is a place owned by another country.The 13
colonies in America were owned by England and ruled by
King George lll (The British King). He passed on the
ownership to his brother, James,Duke of York.They
renamed New Amsterdam, New York City, and they
named New Netherland New York.The cool thing about
that is that, not a single shot had to be fired!! Whew!! The
Colonial Times was a long period in history.The people
were hard working.Things were WAY different!

Fantastic Homes!

The Colonists arrived in America but the Native Americans
were already there! The Native Americans lived in
wigwams and longhouses.They took a few days to make
and lasted over 10 years!! That’s older than I am!!! After a
few years Colonists started to make there own wigwams.
They were made of stone, brick, and wood.A early Colonial
Time home was usually 20x20 ft (6x6 meters) in size.The
walls were thin and cracked, and the doors were so small
that you had to crouch to get in and out.There were no
windows so houses were dark.Storms and fires were a
constant danger to all colonists.Strong winds knocked
down houses, and straw roofs caught fire.

Colonial Time Laws to Follow

● Governor is leader of colony
● Garbage is allowed to be thrown on the streets
● You have to go to church on sunday
● You have to pay your bills

The Colonists had to follow all of these laws or else
they get punished.It was pretty strict back then!!!

Lets go to work!

Good Morrow! My name is Christopher.How do you fare?
Pray, pardon me, but may I tell you about some of the
jobs that we have in colonial times.The first job is the
blacksmith.The blacksmith made iron tools and
horseshoes.They used an anvil and fire, and water to craft
tools.Post haste to! the second job I am going to tell you
about is the Miller.The Miller grounds up the wheat and it
becomes flower in between two stones and that makes
flour.The Cooper made buckets and barrels for the
Colonists.The Wheelwright made/fixed wheels for the
stagecoach witch rode people back and forth.

Let’s Go To Work!

He fixed them when they went arsy-varsy! The next job is
the slaves.They worked on plantations by force, that is
really mean.The slaves worked with no payment
whatsoever.I hope learned from this article.Good day!

What are you wearing?

The rich people wore tight fine linen and robes.They
could not work in them because they were to tight to
work in.The farmers had loose fabric to work easily
in.The boys wore collared shirts and breeches.The girls
wore gowns and aprons.They usually got dirty from
inside and outside work.

Children’s Day

Children did not have a lot of free time. But when they
did, they ENJOYED it sooooooo much!They played with
hoops that no one used. Hoops were things that you
wore to make certain body parts look bigger( depending
on how they were worn.

Childrens Day

The kids had a lot of chores.For girls they would do all the

Lets Travel!

The colonists did not have a lot of ways to travel.The
few ways were,

● Boat/Canoe
● Horse
● Foot
● Wagon
● Chariot

Those are the few ways that they could travel.I
hope you learned a lot (even if there was not a lot)

Yum, yum!

The colonists ate a little like we do.They ate meat, fruits,
vegetables.Thats a lot like how we eat today!The colonists
cooked differently than we do.They used dog power to
cook meat on the spit over the fire.They also used a clock
jack to spin meat over fire

Colonial Conclusion

The 13 Colonies were growing not just in land but also in
population, economy, religion, and food.

The Colonies wanted to change there life style.In 1776,
the Continental Congress had a meeting about this
topic.They decided to become one big country.This was
not approved by King George lll.This was just enough to
start the American Revolutionary War.Sure enough the
colonists won?Right, but it was not at all easy.Spys,
Colonists, Generals, and the Continental Congress, were
all involved. Many were killed.
