Colonial Times by Ellie

Age 9

You could not talk at the table. You could not smile at church or talk or move. You would have to stand or sit on uncomfortable benches. Only Mom and Dad can sit in chairs. Only the men can vote for the laws. The people work all day long. The boys even have to hunt. They have only one room, the bigger kids sleep in the attic. The little kids sleep in the kitchen where they work and cook and eat. Boys went to school longer than girls. There were no bathrooms, no running water so they took buckets of water and stood in a big bucket and poured water on them. They drink beer and the little kids too. they had to make their own things. The boys and girls wore weird clothes. They ate a lot of corn and meat.
