Colonial Days at El Morro
El Morro Elementary students took a journey back in American history during Colonial Days 2010, held Monday and Tuesday at the school. It was the 20th annual Colonial Days at the school.
The PTA-sponsored event included the reconstruction of an American colonial village and a rich variety of hands-on opportunities, which helped students experience for themselves what life was like in the early days of the United States. Students made candles, sewed a pillow, made a wax seal, played colonial children's games, sampled colonial foods, and had their profile drawn in the silhouette booth.
"Living Off of the Land" was this year's theme and students, staff, and volunteers dressed in colonial day attire for the events that took place in the transformed multipurpose room. This is the second year Colonial Days has been planned over a six-year cycle so students experience something different every year, according to school officials.
