Fourth-graders at Long Beach’s Lindell Elementary School brought the 17th and 18th centuries into their classrooms on Feb. 6, when they presented a Colonial Fair for parents and other guests. The students wore traditional colonial attire as they shared information about life during the historical era.

Prior to the event, students spent time researching various aspects of colonial times and created reports and display boards. The projects were produced through inquiry-based learning and incorporated literacy, technology, research and visual components. They covered topics such as education, jobs, transportation, games, entertainment, health and clothing that were characteristic of the 1600s and 1700s.
