Have you ever thought, "I wonder what it would be like to interview the original colonies of America"? Well, on September 27 and 28 at St. John's, visitors and students got that opportunity to travel back in time and hear, taste, see and experience the different regions of our country, before the came to known as the "united" States.
The 8th Grade students partnered up and chose an original colony to research and present at this year's "Colonial Days." We saw presentations on the colonies of Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Carolina, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Virginia. The students regaled us with stories about the culture of their colonies--including their religion, their economy, climate, and history of the founding. We tasted cornbread from Virginia, sampled snickersdoodles from Delaware, relished tea from Georgia, and wore stickers emblazoned with the motto "Vote for Pennsylvania!"
All guests and visitors were invited to vote on which colony they would most likely move to, based on the presentations from the 8th Grade representatives. The results of that vote will be announced shortly.
Thanks to Ms. Mockler and the 8th Grade students who did a remarkable job at this year's "Colonial Days. We look forward to next year and traveling back into that time machine once again!
