What was it like to live during the Colonial Days? After a visit from Sheldon Stowe, Mrs. Eisenhardt’s and Mrs. Weiss’ students at Emma C. Chase Elementary School would probably be able to tell you! The students had a special guest that delivered a historical presentation of colonial times.
Mr. Sheldon Stowe is a Social Studies teacher who offers school history programs for fourth-grade students around the Hudson Valley. Mr. Stowe made history come alive! There were many artifacts and pictures displayed from the colonial times that he discussed.
The second half of the presentation was a hands-on craft workshop. Each student learned how to write with a quill pen and made their own candles to bring home.
Thank you Mr. Stowe!
