Social Studies

Students are researching the trades during Colonial Boston time. The students will use this information when they are assigned a family and a family business. They will need to be experts on things such as what materials are needed for their job. What goods did their job produce. What skills they have to learn. Jobs and characters should be assigned by the end of the week.
