One of the hallmarks of third grade at North Cross is Colonial Day. Over the course of the year, students study colonial Virginia, and take field trips to Monticello and Natural Bridge.
On Thursday, students in Ms. Martin and Mrs. Clark's classes dressed in colonial attire and got a real glimpse of what it was like to live in the 1600's as they made candles, wrote with quills, learned embroidery, and made hats and bonnets. The students also had a Colonial inspired P.E. class, and the entire school enjoyed a Colonial style lunch in the dining hall. To conclude the program, the students performed dance routines and played traditional songs of the era on recorders for their parents.
