Angus Gilbreath and Hayden Bauer enjoy Colonial Games Day.
In colonial days, children had to work as hard as their parents in order for their community to survive. But no matter how hard they worked, they always found time for games and recreation.
After working hard on their study of colonial American life, Lakehill Preparatory School third graders celebrated by playing a few colonial games of their own.
Students worked in teams to research and prepare a game from the period. On the recent Colonial Games Day, Lower School students visited the student-led activity stations, enjoying a variety of activities, from familiar games like shooting marbles and hopscotch, to lesser known games like nine pins and wampum. A collection of colonial costumes let everyone dress the part.
