This lesson provides teachers with a warm-up activity, individual/guided practice activities, lesson extensions, handouts, and project ideas. The bulk of this lesson will require students to read handouts related to the daily life of women and children during the 1700s. This will be followed up by a mini-essay activity related to Colonial Women and Children.
