April 25 Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is." ~ Benjamin Franklin

Looks like it would get awfully hot out in the fields in August...

This week: We'll share our information about colonial trades. (Be looking for an informational bulletin board that describes many of the trades and crafts of colonial America.) We'll complete a quick review of American colonies (quiz), then embark on an adventure to learn about the French and Indian War.

Take care-
