Here are some fun memories from our Colonial Boston Storypath. We loved the beautiful frieze of Boston that our class created in the hallway just outside our door. When the British ships invaded our harbor, we asked the students what had happened. One student wryly shared, "Mrs. Rencher, you xeroxed some boats and stapled them to the bulletin board." Gotta love 4th grade!

Sam Adams (who looks an awful lot like Coach Martin) showed up in our classroom one afternoon to have a meeting with the colonists.   After sharing that Governor Hutchinson refused to make the British ship leave our port, Sam Adams proclaimed, "This meeting can do nothing further to save the country." Later that evening the famous Boston Tea Party took place which led us to the Revolutionary War.
