Fifth-grade students rotated to numerous stations during Pleasant Valley Elementary's Colonial Day. The event was meant to teach the students about how children lived in the 1700s and 1800s. They participated in activities such as creating their own candles, writing calligraphy with feather pens and playing hop-scotch.
