New Netherlands' Children

New Netherlands' Children
Student time travelers will be placed along a 37 foot long time line as they begin their journey into the middle of the 18th century. Upon their arrival they, along with their new brothers and sisters, will have adopted the names of real Dutch children, complete with partial costumes. Students will view and analyze photographs of American art works to discover that their clothing, food, schooling, amusements, and life expectance are dramatically different than today. As they role play children will engage in activities such as carrying water with a yoke and cup and ball. As a culminating activity students will quiz one another to see which child has truly become part of the 18th century.

Time Needed: 2 ½ hours     Grade Levels: 3 & Up
