1 Colonial Life

2 Target Audience 7 th Gr Social Studies Classes Goals and Objectives Students will be able to build background of colonial life by observing and handling artifacts; create a mini museum exhibit Assessment Formative assessments include answers to discovery questions during stations, exhibit theme approval, group progress checks, preview of exhibit tour Students will design and create theme-based exhibits with labels for all artifacts: one real artifact and three or more related virtual artifacts

3 Part 1 of Colonial Life Students have about 5-7 minutes with each discovery station Materials are passed around to next group for review Students fill out question sheets from each station which help them focus on details such as the materials used, who may have used the artifact, and how it compares to modern day life A scavenger hunt in the form of a bingo sheet is also provided for those who finish questions early or have observed details which may be bypassed or seem like trivia to others.

4 Artifacts Station 2: bullet replicas, bullet mold, cartridge sample, powder horn, flint piece, haversack Station 3: wooden spoon and bowl, sugar cone, soap cake, horn spoon, tin lantern, wire fork, molasses Station 4: deck of cards, bees wax candle, wooden dice, spinning top, game of jacks, tabletop bowling Station 5: various colonial dollars, Spanish milled dollar with pieces of eight, sample of stamp tax Station 6: newspapers of runaway ads, slave chain, quill pen, permit, socks, handcuffs Station 1: flax strands, flax thread, wooden needle case, linen bags, wig curler

5 Part 2 of Colonial Life Prime Time 1: Show documentary on colonial life; introduce the rubric and objectives. Their task is to choose a theme for their exhibit and research virtual artifacts to feature. Downtime: Pairs of students choose one real artifact they would like to use in their mini museum; discuss possible themes and virtual artifacts to include Prime Time 2: Relate search to colonial items from discovery stations; provide instruction for internet search, and samples of museum labels

6 Part 3 of Colonial Life Students may choose the category or theme of their exhibit. For example: if they have the artifact of flax thread, they may choose a theme of 18 th Century Clothing, or Sewing Now and Then. After finding several items that fit the theme of their exhibit, students will create museum labels to describe details of the artifacts. Exhibits will include the one real artifact and all the virtual artifacts, labels and pictures. Exhibits can be created with Power-Point or printed for display on a board/poster
