Tools of the Trade! Day Jobs in Colonial America


Do you feel like you know your chosen trade better? Would you be willing to trade places with someone who lived during colonial times?

In this research process, we hope you found out more about the types of trades available during colonial times.  We introduced you to some great web resources, as well as how to access the web using your username and password. 


We look forward to seeing the fruits of your "labors", that is, your final project.  Remember, be creative in designing your poster.  Have fun.  Step back from the poster and imagine you don't know anything about the trade.  Does the poster convey the image you're after?  Is it easy to understand? The next time your listening to your IPod or relaxing with a good book, remember if you lived during colonial times, you would probably work at least 10 hours a day for very little pay.
