Let's get started!
1) First, you are going to be dressing a paper doll in clothing appropriate for the 1700s. Use this link to see examples of clothing for men and women in the colonial period. Dress your paper doll pattern in authentic clothing. You may use construction paper, fabric, lace, yarn and other materials. Be sure to include hair and facial features on your doll. You should consider adding accessories such as gloves, hat, apron, etc.

2)Next, you will research one colonial trade. You will become an expert on that particular job.
3)Then, you will write a three paragraph report explaining your job.
4)Last, you will create a shop sign to match your chosen trade.
I have provided some links that will help with your research.

Everyone will make a shop sign and a colonial doll. Everyone will write a three paragraph report. You will have the choice of how to present your report to the class. You may write it out as a hard copy on paper or type it up and make a power point presentation of your research. This will be your choice.
