Part of the social studies for 5th grade is studying the Colonial period.

For this lesson, students used scrap cardboard and tempera paint.

Students looked at images of historic and reproduced colonial signs noting what things should be included as well as noticing the spelling of words.

Students drew a quick sketch to lay out their designs. Once the sketch was complete, they drew images onto the cardboard then painted their sign.

Some chose to cut the cardboard, others did not. To make sure we had lots of diversity, the classroom teacher assigned colonial jobs to their students.
