Colonial Day!


Colonial Day

Friday, March 22, 2024   **After the Egg Drop**

5th grade has been learning about our nation’s early colonial days.  Our plan is to have a “Living in colonial times” day after our egg drop off the bridge. This will be outdoors on our lower playground.

Colonial living stations that include:
Button and Twine Game
Hand-made Butter and Johnny Cakes
Marble Game
Stick and Hoop Races
Sack Races


Game of Graces

**Dressing in Colonial period costume is optional, but so much fun if you do!**

Johnny Cakes | Kitchn


  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup boiling water
  • oil or shortening


1. Mix the corn meal, sugar, and salt together.

2. Slowly add the boiling water to the cornmeal mixture. Stir until just combined. Do not over-mix.

3. Warm a griddle or frying pan (nonstick or cast iron) over medium heat (about 350°). It is preheated when water “dances” across the heated surface when sprinkled on it. Note: Johnny-cakes will stick to an aluminum pan, so it is best to use a griddle or frying pan made of cast iron or with a non-stick coating.
