Colonial to American Revolution Day (CAR) and Colonial Days
The Colonial to American Revolution (CAR) Day is an annual all-day event for first grade students. Colonial-related activities are featured in P.E., science, math, English and history classes. Dressed in colonial costumes all day, students learn about “taxation without representation” in their mathematics class, and science covers Ben Franklin’s invention of electricity. History features historical plays written by the first graders with help from their families, while in English the students recite poetry about George Washington and write using feather pens. The plays are then performed in each respective first grade classroom. After the play performances, LCS hosts an independence picnic on the playground. Guests are welcomed to join and should dress comfortably as we may have some fun games at the picnic.
Colonial Days is a similar event in which our third grade students participate. Dressed in colonial costumes all day, students present living portraits of colonial people as well as participate in other Colonial activities in English, math, and P.E. classes.
