Colonial Day at Churchill Road

On Friday, Dec. 6, Churchill Road fourth graders stepped back in time to the 19th century and participated in the school’s annual Colonial Day. This immersion into the life styles and customs of the colonial days marked the culmination of the fourth graders’ social studies unit on Colonial America.

Organized by CRS fourth grade teachers Pat Brownley, Sally Donnelly, David Ickowski, Nicholas Kilpatrick, Claire McHale and Steven Nicklas, students, teachers and parents participated in a variety of period activities that included tin punching, calligraphy, candle-making, stenciling, dancing, corn husk doll making, games and more. The students particularly enjoyed dancing the Virginia Reel and making fresh biscuits with homemade butter.
