What I learned about Colonial Times by Joe
If you lived in colonial times kids could drink rum and beer. Kids didn't have much time to play. Kids couldn't move in church. Kids wore funny looking clothes. Boys and girls got out of school early. There were lots of punishments. Girls were only allowed to wear dresses. You weren't allowed to work on Sunday. You couldn't even smile or giggle in church or you could be fined. Kids had to stand while they were eating because they didn't have seats. Men were the only people to make the laws. Men and boys hunted while the women and girls cooked and cleaned. And men and boys fished as well. If you fell asleep in church you would be smacked in the head. In Boston the first person to be put in the stocks was the person who made them.
