Gwin Elementary will hold its annual Colonial Day celebration for students Nov. 18 at the school.
An opening program begins at 8:15 a.m. Activities will run until 2 p.m.
The event gives students hands-on lessons in colonial living. Students will make crafts, visit exhibits, learn about colonial living and play colonial games.
Craftspeople will be on hand to demonstrate their trades. Some of the activities students may observe or participate in include “National Treasure” hunt, a Revolution Expo, a “Betsy Ross” guest appearance, quilting, horse-drawn carriage rides, Indian hunting camp, colonial kitchen, blacksmithing, Boston Tea Party, quill pens, Gwin’s edition of “Are You Smarter Than a Patriot?” and more.
Students, teachers and volunteers are encouraged to dress in colonial costumes to portray characters such as patriots, pilgrims, Native Americans or pirates.
