Colonial Village: Perryville!

Interact Story Theater came and visited us today. Mrs. OK helped us become actors and took us back in time to 1768 where we became shop workers. Please post anything you learned, what you found unusual about life in 1768, and your favorite part about the presentation. All homeroom students should post for a social studies grade. Be detailed and specific.

Yesterday I was a dentis and I found out that back then signs and some peopl could not read the signs. I found out that dentises work at the black smiths shop and that dentises have diffrent tools to help peopls teeth.

I think that you need to have a good acting skills to do a lot of what we did on May 1 2008.i leaned that they used sings that were pictuers because they did not know how to read.
