Innovative Program

Colonial Day

Students at Makefield Elementary School of Pennsbury School District have the opportunity to go back in time to the 1700s to gain a better understanding of the Colonial era. The day-long program called “Colonial Day” occurs every two years and has been taking place at the school for almost three decades. During the day, students interact with militiamen, tradesmen and craftsmen, and even participate in activities such as quill writing and candle making. By enabling children to engage with aspects of Colonial life, the students gain a greater appreciation of our past history.
