Colonial Arts Unit
Colonial Shopkeeper Signs


Students had already learned about many of the crafts and trades of Colonial times, and enjoyed creating a "sign" that they might have had hanging outside of their place of business in the 1700s. As some people then could not read, they were instructed to paint a sign that would show their service or type of business.
