Colonial Woodworkers
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Take a walk through your neighborhood, and you may see houses made of brick, wood, stone, vinyl siding, and other materials. In colonial days, houses were mostly made of wood.
 
2     Today we have furniture made of wood, metal, plastic, and other materials. The colonists had furniture made almost entirely of wood.
 
3     We use containers made of plastic, glass, metal, cardboard, and other materials. Many of the containers used by the colonists were made of wood.
 
4     Most of our vehicles have tires made of rubber over metal wheels. The colonists' vehicles had wheels made of wood.
