The second grade class of the Country Day School continued the tradition of studying Colonial America in a program featuring docents in period dress explaining life in early Madison.
As usual the class came prepared, even watching a video from the Grave Foundation depicting hearth cooking, weaving and chores.
One of the highlights was when the group was shown the chart reflecting over 300 years of the Grave family. The question was asked “Who inherits the house?” One lad spoke right up and correctly repsonded, “the oldest son”.
After the House programs, all enjoyed colonial games outside on a beautiful day and ending with a robust game of tag.
