Madison Middle School Hosts Colonial Fair

Students take on the role of colonists and answer questions from judges about crafts, food and life in the 13 original U.S. colonies.

The Colonial Fair is the culmination of a research-intense, experiential learning opportunity for Madison eighth graders. The students were placed in groups of three and each student was responsible for a portion of the "booth" at the fair. There are students responsible for the creation of a hand-craft, students who were responsible for a food, and students who were responsible for making a brochure about the colony. Craft and food students also researched trades and customs of the colonial period.
 
At the fair, students presented essays they wrote, their craft, their brochure and their food to 3-6 judges from the community (former teachers) who evaluate them on presentation, knowledge of their subject, and general colonial knowledge. The judges score the students to determine the winning group from each class period.
