Colonial America Silhouette Pictures – History Projects for Homeschoolers

Colonists were not able to take many things with them when they left for America. Camera’s had not been invented and it was expensive and time consuming to have an oil picture made of oneself. So Silhouette pictures became popular with colonists as a way to preserve loved ones likenesses and decorate their homes. Here is our Colonial Silhouette Picture.

Colonial Punishment Stocks – Homeschool History Project

Stocks were used in Colonial America to punish colonists. One punishable item was blasphemy. In the stocks people were submitted to public humiliation as others were encourage to laugh at them (where the term laughing stock comes from) and throw mud, eggs, and rotten vegetables at them. We made our own stocks. The kids determined it would not be fun to be stuck like this.
