Earlier this month, second grade students at Dillsburg Elementary School celebrated Heritage Day with several exciting activities celebrating what life was like in the past. In the morning, students participated in a variety of Colonial games, such as corn cob darts, hoops, graces, and battledore and shuttlecock. They even tried walking on stilts. In the afternoon, Mrs. Victoria Wonders, a retired Northern second grade teacher and member of NYCHAPS, demonstrated how colonists used various antiques in their daily lives. Mrs. Wonders also explained what school was like in Colonial times and the students wrote with feather pens, just like in the past!
