Colonial Schools
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Suppose colonial kids could have looked into the future. They would have been amazed. They would have been surprised to see our schools. They would have been surprised to see what our school day is like, too.
 
2     They would see what we do in the morning. We put on jeans and a T-shirt. We grab a box of cold cereal. We eat breakfast fast. Then, we grab our heavy backpacks. We run outside just in time to catch the bus.
 
3     The colonial kids would see our day in school. We have reading, spelling, and writing. We have math, science, and history. We have pizza for lunch in the cafeteria. We have art, music, and library. We have recess for fun. Then, we ride the bus home.
 
4     The colonial kids would see how we spend the rest of our day. After school, we are ready for a break. We have a snack and play video games. Later, we do homework. We watch TV, read, and go to bed.
 
5     Why would the colonial kids be so surprised? Our day is much different from theirs.
